Donation of Chairs

We would like to thank the Rev. Paul Murray and the Congregation of Kinloch Free Church of Scotland for their very kind donation of chairs for the benefit of the community here.

The chairs will be used for our social gatherings and for any other local community events – we are hoping that the next event isn’t very far away!!

Playpark Development

Work on the new Playpark for the two villages is nearing completion, with the final elements in relation to signage, safety matting, grass seeding and so on currently being undertaken.

A formal opening day event is now planned for the 1st of September, which will include fun and entertainment for all ages and the whole community, including a barbeque, bouncy castle and more.

Given the effort being put in to getting both the park and the launch, Keose Glebe Estate have decided not to run its own ‘community day’ this summer, but will instead assist with, and contribute to, the Community Association event.

A great deal of local volunteer effort has gone in to getting the park up and running, and this will be a fantastic resource for the children in the community.

This effort is much appreciated.

New Estate Cattle Grid

With financial assistance from Marine Harvest, and in conjunction with Keose Glebe Grazings, the moor road has been further upgraded with the installation of a new cattle grid. (The work being undertaken by AMK).

The old grid was getting to the end of its useful life, and the side walls had begun to fall, or were extremely wobbly. It is great therefore to see the new unit in place, compete with its hedgehog ladder and escape hope.

Thank you to all involved, and to Marine Harvest in particular. Continue reading “New Estate Cattle Grid”

Keose Glebe Noticeboard

The work on the village noticeboard has taken a step forward with the arrival of the centrepiece signage, and the creation of a flowerbed around its base.

This signage has two purposes – one as a village map and locator; and secondly as a space to advertise local businesses, services and funding providers.

Additional information panels and services will be installed soon.

Thanks to Stuart at Graphite Signs for the excellent signage; to Angus Macdonald for the stonework; and to Donna Graysmith for the plants and planting.
