COMMUNITY

Teenagers brainstormed their ideas of the community during an Active Citizens workshop.


Local Community

The Eoropie Dunes Park is located on the most north-westerly point in Britain, in the area of Ness.

Ness has a population of around 1,000 of the most kind and down-to-earth people who work together to support a wide range of facilities, including the fantastic playpark.

The park was set up and is run voluntarily by individuals from the community, for the community.

Volunteers
GAIN is forever indebted to all the willing volunteers from the community that have helped us over the years. From Eoropie township and Grazings Committee who donated the land to us to the generous people that have given donations or helped at our activities. See Activities for more detail.

Any comments, feedback or suggestions about the park are welcomed. Please use our contact page or Facebook page. Thank you.

GAIN has forged strong links with the local voluntary and statutory agencies – in fact in recent years GAIN has worked with two thirds of all organisations in Ness for mutual benefit, often running joint projects e.g annual Duck Race with Taidh Dhonnchaidh.

Friends of Eoropie Dunes Park

In 2015 we recorded over 5000 visitors to the park. GAIN will soon be asking visitors to the park to consider becoming a Friend of Eoropie Dunes Park. The list of membership will mainly demonstrate support for the park but will also allow us to send information on activities and events. The only criteria for becoming a members or a friend of the park is to appreciate the park!
