Future Plans

Lease of Nursery from Moray Council

The most significant project for FIB is to finalise the terms of the lease of the Nursery. Although the offer of 10 years for £1 appears attractive, the conditions expected will be costly to implement.

  • FIB has funding for installation of solar panels
  • Consideration will be given to the installation of a Bore Hole to provide water

Other Plans
