There will be plenty more opportunities to volunteer and help make our community park and village beautiful. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for future opportunities :)
Karen Coburn and Jane Stewart have bravely nominated themselves to complete the Tough Mudder 2019 5K challenge on behalf of the Strathpeffer Residents’ Association.
Please show them your support and dig deep!
Come and join us at the Strathpeffer community centre for our anual general meeting on the 8th of June starting at 11AMThis will be a short meeting for us to summarise all the wonderful progress that has been made with the Strathpeffer Community Park Project over the last year, present our accounts and elect/re-elect our Board.
We don't expect it to take much more than half an hour. Your attendance will help show support (useful for our fundraising efforts) and keep our spirits high, so please pop along if you can.
Non-members, as well as children, are more than welcome and there will be plenty of time after the meeting for you to discuss the park project with us.
Strathpeffer Residents' Association require the services of a professional project manager to deliver an exciting community park project in the village of Strathpeffer.
Main tasks include 1) managing our planning permission application; 2) overseeing the purchase of the land through an approved Community Asset Transfer; 3) day to day management and coordination of contracts for drainage works, path network, and children's play park.
We request a quote for the works detailed in the attached Invitation to Quote document where you will find all information relating to the tendering process.
The successful contractor will be able to provide evidence of having successfully managed similar small infrastructure projects, experience of working with communities (excellent communication skills), ability to manage time flexibly, and have experience of the planning system.
Please note that we have extended the submission deadline to 12:00 on Monday 3rd June.
Here at the SRA we are still over the moon with our Scottish land fund award of £38,025. But the work and the fundraising doesn’t stop here. Our chances of success are greatly improved by the support we will be able to access with our Scottish Land Fund money, but drainage, paths, and children’s play parks are not cheap, and we still have a lot of money to raise.

* We recently updated our Business Plan in which we detail a simplified approach that focuses on drainage, paths and children's play facilities. We have consulted with various experts and taken on board comments received from members of our community to develop the new plan (below). We hope you like it and that it meets your expectations!
We will send out a more formal request for feedback in due course but if you have any initial comments* or suggestions please get in touch with the SRA board via our Facebook page, email, or in person.
*We have noted concerns about the location of the equipment lock-up from some neighbors of the site and look forward to working out a solution with them.
