SELF-BUILDERS IN Moray have been able to benefit from the continuing progress by a locally based charity that has facilitated a series of ‘learning sessions’.

Get Rugged was formed with the aim of building key relationships – and through that helping facilitate its series of learning sessions for aspiring self-builders in the region.

Following the charity’s recent Annual General Meeting, chairman Barry Jarvis said that it had been a very successful year, adding: “We have continued to build ourselves as an organisation and we are delighted to again have industry leaders in natural, self-build coming to Moray to put on a series of classes.

“This coming year looks to continue to be as exciting as we move forward with a number of projects that look to continue to grow the organisation and support self-build in Moray.”

Project manager for Get Rugged is Kim Siu, who added: “It has been a pleasure to bring Barbara Jones, one of the UK’s leading specialist and the social enterprise School of Natural Building to Moray.

“Get Rugged is proud to partner with them and will run their courses in north east Scotland next year. Our main focus is on increasing potential for the natural self-builder to follow their own self-build dream!

“We have a number of exciting projects in the pipeline to continue the growth of the organisation that we are hoping to be able to promote in the coming year.”

Those interested can learn more about natural, self-building in Moray on the Get Rugged website which includes a free downloadable booklet to get them started.
