Caithness & Sutherland
Welcome to the Caithness and Sutherland Network
Congratulations to Kirsteen Campbell (above) for winning a GWT certificate of merit for her dedication, hard work, enthusiasm and commitment to her volunteer role as local network coordinator with the Caithness & Sutherland Network. The photo shows the presentation given at GWT’s national conference in March with Dr Mariano Sanchez, University of Granada, Spain.
Sadly, however I have to report that Kirsteen has recently retired from her volunteer post to take up a full time position. GWT would like to say a massive big thank you to Kirsteen for all her hard work and wish her all the best in her new job.
GWT is now seeking to recruit another volunteer coordinator so if you are interested please get in touch with Alison Clyde.
During this year, 2021, GWT will be hosting a series of thematic network meetings (usually twice a month) covering a variety of themes. We hope that this will give all members a great opportunity to share practice and ideas with members across Scotland as our geographical boundaries are smaller due to online sessions. All are welcome to come along to any of the thematic meetings. The links will be sent out to you and can also be found under events on the website page and in GWT Thematic Calendar 2021.
