‘Community Land Scotland’ have designated 10th – 18th August as ‘COMMUNITY LAND WEEK 2019’ to celebrate community land ownership throughout Scotland. 

Though still at the early stages with regard to the purchase of land at the Trumland estate, REWDT have been invited to join in these celebrations so Rachael is organising a family-friendly event for Saturday 17th August.  

It will be centred around a tiny but fascinating plant, the ‘Round-Leaved Sundew’, that only grows in the peaty soils of hill-land such as we have in the centre of Rousay. There will be various arts activities open to all ages, an information board outlining ideas and possibilities for some of the Trumland land projects and Rachael will, of course, be on hand to discuss these with you

The local Brownies & Guides will be serving drinks & snacks and hoping to earn some money towards their future activities so please give generously!
