Grazey Days started off from a very small kitchen and a part time ‘hobby’, has now become a successful growing business with 6 members of amazing staff. The past 3 years has seen the company go in directions it could never have anticipated - we now have 2 delivery vans, and also a takeaway on Shore Street. We started off doing Afternoon Teas, and still continue to offer this 7 days a week. We also have the Takeaway open 5 days a week.
2024 Community Partner - South Kessock Residents Association
We are delighted to announce that Àban is joining forces with South Kessock Residents Association for the 2024 Kessock Ferry Swim. A grant of £1,500 will be made after the event.
"South Kessock Residents Association represents all residents who live in South Kessock. We have a Community Garden which is accessible to all where we grow vegetables and fruit. We hold various events which involve the whole community and where adults and children can socialise in a safe environment.. We have free events for the children at Halloween, Christmas, Easter and summer. We would use the grant to further the cultivation of the Community Garden and to purchase a picnic table for the new park."
