With thanks to the EDF Renewables Corriemoillie Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund (Marybank, Scatwell & Strathconon) volunteers on the Fairburn Memorial Hall committee have designed, with input from the local community, a programme of activities for residents in Marybank, Scatwell and Strathconon.

It was a great summer of kids activities at Fairburn Activity Centre.
We had 8 days of events. Which was around 80 times, the kids in our local community explored land, water and at height activities.

As autumn beings to peak around the corner, we turn our attention to the activities for adults and a couple more kids activities during the school holidays in 2021.

Please remember this is a volunteer run initiative and a responses may not be immediate.
