Aviation and science attraction won’t stand still

Planning for the future at Morayvia.

THE WINTER MONTHS may give respite for those behind Moray’s Science and Aviation attraction Morayvia – but it also provides an opportunity to plan for the future.

To help them along the way recently Morayvia volunteers were joined by Sylvia Jamieson from the Moray Council Community Support Unit and Karen Chamberlain from Highlands and Islands Enterprise.

One of the main items on the agenda, and an issue that Ms Jamieson has particular expertise, was Community Asset Transfers – the mechanism under which local community groups can take control of Council-owned assets if they can show plans that are of benefit to the local community.

The assistance of Highlands and Islands Enterprise is also valuable to Morayvia as they think in terms of future funding applications for their growing attraction, which last year was awarded four-star status by VisitScotland.

Morayvia Chairman Mark Mair said: “It was a very productive session for our board members and volunteers who were able to learn much of the processes we need to go through for the future growth of Morayvia.

“We are grateful to Sylvia and Karen for helping us with the and the ideas generated will surely assist Morayvia to prioritise and plan ahead for the next three years.”
