2020 is Year of the Burra Noost!

Updated: Feb 11, 2020

Burra Noost supporters very young, young and not so young standing in a noost at Bridge End, Burra.

The big news for 2020 is that Moder Dy is planning to begin the Burra Noost Project this coming May! Of course we need to secure some funding first and, in February, we will be submitting our full project application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The full cost of this project is coming in at £47,500. However some of this cost is offset by the £700 that you have generously donated. And, as you know, just before Christmas we were awarded a small pot (£470) of community engagement funding to make some short Burra Noost promotional videos by the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology.

So in total we have £1,150 as our current contribution to the project. However, on top of this we have the non chargeable cost of our volunteer time, and for the Burra Noost Project this totals a whopping £48,000!

As well as being the year of our brilliant Burra Noost Project, 2020 is Scotland's celebration of its Coasts and Waters. Throughout Scotland there will be a year-long programme of events and activities which will shine a spotlight on these vital elements of our landscape. Moder Dy is of course very keen to join in these celebrations, and we will be running some practical hands-on have a go workshops! So, watch this space! More details to follow shortly!
