A number of community groups operating in the Wick area have benefited from micro-grants awarded through the Royal Burgh of Wick Community Council.

The money for the micro-grants, up to a maximum of £250, comes from funds provided to the community council by Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd and is available to groups and organisations from the town.

Representatives of some of the groups gathered for a photo opportunity in front of the Beatrice operations and maintenance base at Wick harbour.

Community council chairperson Joanna Coghill, vice-chairman Allan Farquhar and community council member Doreen Turner were joined by Claire Mackenzie, of Wick Christmas Lights Committee; Julie Wilson and Eswyl Fell, from the flower baskets committee; Allan Tait, of Caithness Voluntary Group; Charlie Bain, of the Wick Riverside Volunteers; Denny Swanson, from the North Head pillbox restoration group; and Willie Watt, of Wick Paths Group.
