After storm Frank and all the flooding across the UK we were blessed with a dry, cold evening on Hogmanay. Friends, neighbours and family met around a bonfire on Eric's Croft around 11.30pm to bring in the new year. We were thrilled to see the aurora borealis put in an appearance for the event which went with a bang at midnight when fireworks exploded over the Ha'en.
The year 2015 brought many highs and lows to the village, most notably, all the work which culminated in a Gold award
from Beautiful Scotland and conversley, the sad loss of resident and friend, Hugh Scott. No doubt 2016 will bring it's own challenges to both indivduals and the community. However, we will continue our work with Beautiful Scotland and look forward to welcoming
friends old and new to be involved in our various acitivities in 2016. We are extremely fortunate to have the continued support of many wonderful people across the UK and for that we are very grateful. We wish you all, good health and happiness in 2016 and
hope to see you in the Ha'en soon.
