Rathlin residents received a special visit from the Gruffalo last week. His first island appearance was in St Mary’s Primary School where eight very surprised pupils gave him a warm and enthusiastic welcome. He seemed to be as big a hit with the teaching staff as with the children.
Tourism NI staff will be on the island on Thursday 14 April to offer forty five minute one-to-one 'stakeholder clinics' for anyone on the island involved with the tourist industry. Please contact the Resource Centre as soon as possible to book a slot.
We have a limited number of places available for Rathlin residents for a welding training course. The one day course will be held over Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th January (trainees will use one or other of the two days). Cost is £30, and the course will take place on the island, venue to be confirmed. Please contact the Resource Centre as soon as possible to book your place.
We have the opportunity for further powerboat training for Rathlin residents with Charles Stewart of Red Bay Powerboating. This can be for beginners (Level 2 for adults, Level 1 for young people) or for people who have already successfully completed powerboat training before or have similar professional experience or qualifications (Intermediate and possibly Advanced - see Red Bay website for more information on the training levels).
