Cawdor Bonfire & Fireworks 2025

It may seem like a long way off, but there is a great deal involved in organising a bonfire & fireworks event.  So, we are hosting a Planning Meeting on Tuesday 4th June at 7.30pm in the Cawdor Community Centre.  All local community groups and interested parties are warmly invited to join us in discussing ideas and lending support.  Cawdor bonfire events have always been a great success - lets make this one even better!  Feel free to share the poster and details.

The Cawdor Hub

Kirsty Rose, Chair of the CCCA, gave an update at the recent Community Council meeting.  The team has been working hard on streamlining communications and reviewing the constitution.  The Community Centre is to be known as the Cawdor Hub, with a focus on being at the heart of the community.  Exciting new projects include a Youth Club and making the space more inviting to smaller groups.  For further details, go to the website.

Walking and Wheeling Event

Tornagrain and Croy communities are holding a Walking & Wheeling event in Tornagrain on Saturday 18th May from 1-5pm.  The Bike Doctor will be on hand to assist with repairing bikes, and there will be advice on cycle and walking routes as well as active travel information.  And a competition!  For further details click on the link.

 

Cawdor to Nairn River Path

Members of the public are being asked to take care when walking along the river path from Cawdor to the Howford Bridge. Warning signs have been put up by the Highland Council Access Officer, with some diversions at the worst sections where the path has been washed away. The footbridge near the Cawdor Burn, which washed away after storms earlier this year, has been replaced by Cawdor Estate.

SSEN Priority Services Register

SSEN have reminded us of a free support system available to residents in a number of vulnerable categories, including disability, age, those with medical issues.  Registration to the service is free and SSEN would then give extra help during a power cut to those who need it most.  For further details, click on the link.
