Northmavine is the northern glory of Shetland – a tourist paradise of spectacular coastal and inland scenery, wildlife, crafts, great food and drink. And welcoming people.
It’s also one of the most vibrant, hard-working communities in the isles. Fishing, aquaculture, crofting, seafood processing, tourism and of course, it’s home to the hurricane-proof Polycrub, the undercover growtunnel invented and produced by community interest company Nortenergy, a subsidiary of NCDC. Its community recycling centre enables waste and large household items to be dealt with locally.
NCDC exists to help Northmavine grow – economically, yes, but also socially and culturally. We are a local charitable company intent on making this community a better place to live, work, settle and bring up families, and we’ve existed in one form or another since 2004.
Windpower developments, bringing the Chelsea Flower Show Shetland Crofthouse Garden to North Roe, community Polycrubs, housing, the legendary Glusstonberry Festival, guidebooks, the Hillswick Community Shop, tourism initiatives, toilets and tourist facilities at the Collafirth Pier and more. NCDC has done a lot. And we’re keen to do more.
