Well done to all the children from Ardfern, Lunga and Croabh who competed in the Mid Argyll Music Festival this week. And good luck to those who still have classes to go! You are all stars.
So it’s been a busy time on the Craignish Peninsula since the last post. We’ve had weddings, we’ve said goodbye to old friends, there have been ceilidhs, cinema nights, boat club sailings, beach cleans, wheel barrow racing, live music, pop-up shops, vegan cafés and that Big Ass Garage Sale.
The summer was unreal, with 5 weeks of no rain, though September seems to be making up for that, although storm Ali was quite frankly a bit of an anticlimax.
Autumn is in the air, the apple trees are full to bursting and nights of cosy fires and local social shenanigans are in the offing. Stay posted!
We have red squirrels on the peninsula, so if you see one perhaps you’d like to report it here...
It was wet and windy, but that didn't deter folk from braving the elements. That's another 40 bags of rubbish off our shores and a Flapper Skate case was found meaning we are one step closer to getting official protection status for our Loch - amazing results all round!
Thanks everyone for looking, see you at the next Beach Clean (and thanks Kintraw crew for the lovely lunch!)
It's that time of year again! Beach Clean!
These beach cleans make such a difference to our local coastline and raise money for the school - if you're visiting come along and lend a hand.
Good luck to all our Craignish Primary and Senior school students who are competing in the Mid Argyll Music Festival this week. What a talented bunch you are, you make us proud every year!
Its been thrilling to see more and more otters racing around our Peninsula but they have absolutely no road sense what so ever, so please drive carefully. Three baby otters with their mum have been seen at Dunvullig Bay, up near the cemetery. And an otter has also been spotted racing past the school!
Last year the Lord of the Isles was a finalist...how amazing would it be this year if they could take an award back to Craobh Haven! The awards they are going for are:
Best Independent Bar
Best Gastro Pub
If you've ever visited please show your support and vote at: http://entertainmentawards.co.uk/vote-now/
It would mean the world to them, thank you very much.
Thanks to everyone who gave so generously at the Car Wash & Cafe fundraiser on Sunday. The children raised more than expected and are very excited about their upcoming trip to Benmore. Isn't it weird seeing all these shiny, clean cars in Ardfern?!
If you're in Ardfern on Sunday then you're in luck because Craignish Primary 6 & 7 children will be working very hard cleaning all and any vehicles that come their way at Ardfern Fire Station. And all in aid of their week long residential at Benmoor Outdoor Education Centre in June this year. Soup, rolls and cakes will be served at Craignish Primary School while you wait AND they are raffling off 2 hampers full of amazing prizes too.
Please come along to Ardfern Fire Station and Craignish Primary School and support the children and keep fingers crossed for sunshine!
