Just look at what happened at the last Science Festival held at Strathpeffer Community Centre!
We've put together an updated Have Your Say section within the new village web site. Your comments are read and discussed by the Community Council and we will respond as quickly as possible. Your comments help the Community Council to know what people think about a variety of issues.
The Community Council recently submitted an extensive paper to the Highland Council Challenge Fund to work with the Council to establish the case for a village 'handyman' who could begin to address the backlog of maintenance in the village: painting, blocked drains, seats, hedges, water features and so on.
We have just been told that we do not qualify for the Challenge Fund whose £1m remains virtually untouched, but advised that the matter has been referred to Community Services for them to discuss with us together with Robbie Bain, our Ward Manager.

A fun family event, now in its second year, where you can take part in simple experiments and learn something new! Take part in amazing drop-in activities with the team from Dundee Science Centre.

Alternatively make your own Smoothie using just your own energy and find out all about the whales and dolphins in your local waters.
The Strathpeffer Garden Group are to take part in plans to grow millions of poppies across the UK to commemorate WW1
The Garden Group will obtain poppy seeds and undertake the task of scattering them around the village

It's not THE local team, but as our local restaurant caters at Inverness Caley Thistle FC, the Caley's team were in the village for lunch at the Red Poppy Restaurant and they brought with them the Scottish League Cup. Nick Aburrow, Red Poppy Restaurant owner, is pictured here holding the Cup.
Last night we were lucky to have one of the most amazing Northern Lights shows we've ever seen in Strathpeffer.
There were lots of people out taking photographs of the Aurora Borealis and posting them on social networks.
The best one I've seen is by local photographer John Ellis who captured this fantastic image up at Loch Kinellan later in the evening.
