A Positive Future for the Fishertown Seaman’s Hall

Updated: Feb 25


Green Hive is actively exploring with the current trustees a future transfer of ownership of Seaman's Hall to Green Hive for the benefit of the community.

Neil Mapes, Manager of the Green Hive said, “Re-storing and re-purposing this historic and important community building could be the catalyst to a stronger and better community in Nairn. It has been looked after for the benefit of the community for many years and we hope this will be the next chapter for this valued building.


Green Hive recently commissioned Oberlanders Architects and Community Enterprise to undertake more detailed community and technical research. An important part of this is a full community survey which will help us to reach a detailed plan for the future of the building. We want the whole community to tell us what they would like to see, ideally by completing this important survey to make sure everyone’s voice is heard.


The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SeamansHall_Community_Survey


Paper copies can be picked up and dropped off at the library, community centre and Green Hive workshop (Unit 9A2, Tom Semple Road, Balmakeith Industrial Estate, Nairn, IV12 5QW).


For more information and to see early drawings, please come along to the open day drop in on Saturday the 5th February at the Seaman’s Hall from 10am till 3pm. We will be limiting numbers and ensuring covid compliance.


Please also share the survey link throughout the community so we can include as many viewpoints as possible.
