There aim was to bring people together in a time when it was difficult to do so. They have since became a non-profit constituted group whose members host regular meet up events each week from health walks to Munro days and everything in between. Come and hear about how Lorna set this up, worked closely with some key community groups and local council to achieve over 8,200 members and counting!
