TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE FOR OUR CEILIDH !
Tickets are now on sale for our "End of Summer" Ceilidh at the Gordon Memorial Hall in Rosemarkie on Saturday, 2nd September, 7.15pm-10.30pm. Tickets are £15 each (and a limited number of £10 ones for children accompanied by an adult ticket holder) and are available from the Rosemarkie Stores (the Spar). The popular Black Isle Ceilidh Band will be providing the music, so bring along your friends and family - and your own bottle - for a night of dancing and traditional tunes. All proceeds to FRCC community projects.
The Community Council receives a large number of emails relating to consultations from various government and other official bodies. Two recent communications may be of particular interest to you and you are invited to respond directly.
Visitor Levy Bill
You may already be aware that the Scottish Government has proposed a new law which would allow local authorities to introduce an additional charge when someone pays for overnight accommodation. MSPs on the Local Government, Housing and Planning Committee are looking at the details and want to know what people think about them. Given the large number of holiday properties on the Black Isle, residents may wish to share their thoughts. The deadline for comments has been extended to 15th September. Details and how to comment can be found by clicking here: Share your views with the committee
Health and Social Care
NHS Highland and the Highland Council are consulting on the Strategic Plan for Adult Services 2024-27. This is the strategic plan for the delivery of integrated health and adult social care services in the region covered by the Highland Health and Social Care Partnership. You can click here to read the plan and view a video summary and take part in the survey.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all who helped make this year's St Boniface Fair a great success: to the stall holders who took part, to all the volunteers who helped make it happen, and to the residents and visitors who came along on the day. The rain (unbelievably) held off and more than £700 was raised for community projects. We hope to be back - even bigger and better - next year! (You can see photos of the event on the St Boniface Fair section of the website.)
