The Garve & District Development Company were successfully awarded funding from Highlands & Islands Enterprise to combat local issues in the safe recovery from Covid-19
 
The Funding covers two Self Employed Part Time posts for the area, originally this was only until the end of March, but it has now been extended until the end of May due to the new lockdown.
 
The Job ads therefore have been amended and there has been an extension to apply.

I am wondering what kind of issues the recovery fund will be addressing?  It would be useful  to have some idea of possible  examples of assistance which fall within current  guidelines on behaviour.  Hoping for a thaw soon, Pam, Achanalt.

Hi Pamela,



Thank you for your interest. The funding was applied for from the responses to community survey. The safe opening of public facilities and the wider implications for safe recovery from the pandemic.

Examples of its use will be installing automatic hand sanitisers in public places and village halls as well as providing cleaning and safety equipmment that are suitable.

Also Employment of  two people to undertake the tasks set out in the job descriptions in the link.

I hope the thaw has come it was icy on my drive through at the weekend..

( Not entirely tongue in cheek...) Do you think there is a case for Covid  car recovery  provision? I am looking forward to being invited  to a vaccination centre but  a bit worried  about a lapsed MOT  , a flat battery and   a very soft tyre or two. Then  there will be weather to consider and the need to  continue shielding.....just a few thoughts.

Hurrah, I had my jab yesterday.I had two days notice to solve the transport problems and  worry about the ice between me, the car and the road.I put the car battery on charge the night before with the help of extension leads and  plenty of polythene  wrapping round the sockets and charger. It survived the stormy wet night and ,  best of all , the snow and ice had been washed away and the road was clear. MOT worries can wait! Why am I telling you this?  It occurred to me that  anyone  wondering about the Covid recovery programme might consider some sort of liasing and helpline with  information readily available to every one with similar  problems to mine. Thankyou  to the Strathpeffer Surgery for a perfectly managed  programme on  a Saturday in torrential rain .

Hi Pamela,

Great news that you managed to get the jag with all the car and weather issues!.

Think your idea is a great one and hopefully when we recruit someone it is something to be considered.

Take care and hopefully this new snow thats forecast doesnt last long..
