THE cancellation of one Highland Parkrun event at the weekend resulted in some newcomers for an Easter Ross group on Saturday morning.

As previously reported, the Torvean Parkrun in Inverness was cancelled on Saturday after some travellers set up on part of the area used.

The nearest alternative was in Alness which has its own loyal following every Saturday morning.
