CCN Gathering

Every two years, CCN members, friends and supporters come together for a weekend of networking, knowledge-sharing and strategic discussions. The coastal communities gatherings have become known as “Gartmore” after the Gartmore House which hosts CCN during these events.

Gartmore #1, held in May 2016, was the inaugural gathering that sparked the formation of CCN. It was a resounding success, and members agreed to continue this valuable forum. Since then, Fauna & Flora has been an essential partner, providing funding and organising support for the CCN gathering as part of their marine community support work in Scotland.

The next event (Gartmore #2) took place in May 2018 and aimed to build on the success of the previous workshop. A core focus of the event was around how the development and function of CCN. The main goal was for groups to identify shared issues and priorities, on which they could work together or support one another. Gartmore #3 took place in October 2021 (delayed due to the pandemic), and Gartmore #4 was held in May 2023.

These gatherings are always well attended and have become a higlight of the CCN calendar.
