Exciting news !!

After a lot of  work and help from the OIC we had the final confirmation that we have been successful in obtaining the EU LEADER funding that will enable us to employ a Project Manager to help progress our plans. As well as this LEADER along with the OIC Community Fund have made it possible for us to engage Brian Burns Associates of Inverness to prepare a Feasibility Study in preparation to the Project Manager joining us.

If you know anyone who would like to work on the Hall of Clestrain project with us then here is the advert that will be appearing in the Orcadian this week.
