Title: North Scotland
Post by: downtoearth on November 08, 2012, 04:49:37 pm
Seeing as there is a central scotland smallholders  group, does anyone know if there is one in the North?  I would be interested to find other like minded folk around here :)

Not heard of one. There might be something via the Scottish Crofting Federation?

Hopefully the new RBST group that is about to be set up covering now the whole of Northern Scotland will be a starting point.

The meeting for the new RBST support group for North Scotland is being held on Doonies Farm, Nigg on sat 24th Nov at 2.00pm. I think all the details are on the announcements page. I am hoping to go but OH is away so I am on fowl locking up duties and would not be able to stay too long, so will wait and see. But it would be a great opportunity to meet others in 'The North'

Thanks everyone for their input. I'm not really a committee kind of gal, so wouldn't want to start a group but if someone else does I'll come along!  I know that is a pathetic response but its truthful!! :)
