Local Networks: Caithness & Sutherland
GWT would like to welcome our new network coordinator for Caithness & Sutherland, Kirsteen Campbell to the team. We look forward to developing the network with Kirsteen over the coming months. Alison would like to say a big thank you to our previous coordinator Nikki Harrison for helping organise meetings and for her support in growing the membership. We hope to still see Nikki at future meetings.
