  • Fittie Festive Party 

    Thanks to all of those who turned out for our Fittie Festive Party.

    We flung open the doors of the community hall for a free festive event for Fittie residents supported by Aberdeen City Council’s Community Festive Fund. The Harbour Voices community choir sang a round of Christmas and winter themed songs and we hosted a cracking Christmas Quiz. Ceilidh band Clattering Kist got us on our feet and brought the house down. Thanks to Aberdeen Rotary Club for helping to organise the Tombola.

    These events are a great way to bring the community together and get to know each other socially.

  • Mirage Book Launch

    On Sunday 21st November at 7pm, a member of the Safe Harbour: Open Sea team, Victoria Fifield, is launching her new book, ‘Mirage’.

    This story of Victoria’s experiences in the Bedouin city of Rahat is ‘told with humour, humility and honesty’ and offers a glimpse into one of the world’s most rapidly changing cultures. It explores the challenges of working in communities as an outsider, and beautifully illustrates the Bedouin proverb, ‘we learn little from success, but much from failure.’

  • Vattenfall funding awarded

    Good news for the Community – Vattenfall who are construction firm behind the wind farm we see from our windows has made an award to the Trust. They support projects that are environmentally sustainable, and funds will go towards meeting the substantial costs of thermal insulation and double-glazed windows for the community hall. Although we still have some more fund raising to do to meet all our renovation requirements, this is a game changer.

    Coupled with the ground source heat pump, they helped to purchase earlier, these improvements will maximise running efficiency, and reduce energy demand, as well has upgrading our space for social events and recreational activities, benefiting residents and visitors.

    Culture Collective’s partnership with the Fittie Community Development Trust was instrumental in our success in obtaining this award since, among other aims, this project seeks to engage creatively, with those in Fittie who are interested in reducing our carbon footprint.
