Strathdearn Community News

Published at the request of Helen Bailey:

swings thingsCalling all parents, grandparents, carers, etc, who use the play park at Strathdearn Hall with their little ones. Strathdearn Community Developments (SCD) would love to hear from you!

As you probably know, Strathdearn Hall is being redeveloped to create a new community hub. As part of this work, changes will be made to the existing play park. SCD wants to know what you, the users of the existing and new facilities, think about the current plan for the play park.

The architect’s plan (as it currently stands) shows the existing play park equipment divided into two areas, with the smaller toddler equipment to the area in front of the café, and the larger swing and climbing frame to the gable end. The current plan can be viewed on the SCD website and Strathdearn Facebook page. The current play park plan was also discussed recently at a hub meeting on 25th July at Strathdearn Hall.

What do you think about the current plan for the play park at Strathdearn Hall – please tell us!

As a trained academic researcher, and mother of two young children living in Tomatin, I am working voluntarily with SCD to collect and analyse your responses. You can submit your thoughts on the play park in the following ways: via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (include ‘Play park survey’ in the subject bar) or by post to Play park survey, Strathdearn Hall, Tomatin, Inverness, IV13 7YN. All responses will be treated confidentially, and at no point, will personal information be publicly disclosed; I may however, include direct quotes in my analysis. If you wish to be personally involved in further discussions regarding the play park, please include a statement to that effect, together with your contact details.

Please send as long or as short a response as you wish, in relation to any aspect of play park provision you feel is of importance. I will analyse the responses to determine the common themes. The resulting information will be used by SCD, in discussion with the architect, for the ongoing development of the hub plans. There will be future opportunities to review updates to the hub plan, including any changes to the current proposed play park facilities.

The closing date for submitting your responses is Friday 7th September 2018. We look forward to hearing from you!

Kind regards

Helen Bailey, on behalf of SCD

Defib01Strathdearn Medical Group recently purchased 2 defibrillators with money from the Charitable Trust. One will be situated in Moy when a suitable site has been secured. The other was today installed on the wall of the Millennium Hall, near the main door.

Please make yourself familiar with the location of this Automated External Defibrillation unit (AED). Every second is important in an emergency situation where someone is suffering a heart attack. In particular, people using the covered sports facility should take notice. Strenuous physical exercise can sometimes trigger these cardiac events.

The unit contains clear pictorial instructions to enable anyone to safely use the device, even without training. If someone in the vicinity suffers a heart attack, immediately ring 999 then open the box and follow the instructions. The wall-mounted box containing the AED is sealed. The seals can be easily broken but PLEASE DO NO BREAK THE SEALS EXCEPT IN AN EMERGENCY. An alarm will go off and the seals will have to be replaced and the equipment checked  at considerable expense to the community.

Liz Campbell of the Medical Group recently held a training night in the Hall where14 volunteers practised using the AED and other CPR techniques.

We'll publish similar information on the location of the Moy defibrillator once it's been installed. Watch this space!

 

 
director wantedWhite River Trading Ltd is the commercial arm of Strathdearn Community Developments, responsible for the community run shop. We are currently looking to recruit a second director to support the shop staff and development team at this exciting time as we plan the shop move to the Hub.
 
Retail experience would be advantageous but far more important is a willingness to get involved. The priority is to ensure the shop becomes financially sustainable whilst serving the needs of the community . This will involve attending quarterly meetings, providing occasional cover, helping with stocktakes and anything else that’s needed !

bat surveyBat Survey

With the forthcoming plans for the deconstruction of the old hall in Tomatin, we are required to have a bat survey undertaken at the site.

This has been planned for the end of May and it is likely to be done late at night or very early in the morning. This notice is to make residents aware that there will be people in the hall grounds conducting the survey during unsocial hours.

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
