Posted 13/01/2021

Thinking about taking up a new skill? We have 75 x £20 grants for the cost of equipment and books for adults to learn new skills, courtesy of our successful application to HIE's Communities Recovery Fund. It could be learning a new language, or you could be embarking on a taster course in a new skill. 

Remember that we also have our own Wellbeing 100 Fund & Educational Bursary Fund. So if you find that you are enjoying learning, you might be able to continue with additional funding (subject to meeting the eligibility criteria). Please ask us if you need more information.

The Pier Project - Timeline
Posted 13/01/2021

Following the ongoing interest in The Pier project, we have produced a timeline, to illustrate the work undertaken by the Development Trust, in relation to this project, over the last few years. This timeline breaks down into specific actions and dates. To assist you, we have created image maps, which means that you can click on each activity and you will be taken to the associated document. To access these timelines (split into 3 in total), you will need to use the following links: 

The Pier Timeline 2019

The Pier Timeline 2020 (January-March)

The Pier Timeline 2020 (April-December)

We have also produced a timeline which summarises the main points - you can see these further below (these are not image maps, so there are no links to documents on these ones). If you are viewing this on a mobile device, you may only see a partial image - please click or tap on the images to see a larger version. 

We hope you will find these timelines and documents useful, however, as ever, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
