AN Easter Ross hall which is now community owned is looking to maximise its potential with an intake of fresh ideas.

An ‘open and informal’ meeting is due to be held at the Saltburn Community Centre this Thursday at 7pm.

The centre was saved at the 11th hour by the Invergordon Off the Wall Group, who brought together user groups and volunteers to prevent it being lost to the local community.

Marion Rhind, of Invergordon Off the Wall, told the Ross-shire prior to the meeting, "We have already had a wealth of suggestions from local folk but are looking to build on those and find out who else is interested in getting involved.

"The meeting will just be an informal gathering for current or potential users of the centre, which can serve the wider community of Invergordon. We are looking to maximise the opportunities of this asset which is now in community ownership."

Mrs Rhind, added, "Some 37 folk, with lots of different skills, have already come forward to offer their support but we are now looking to develop those skills and also encourage more people to use the centre.

"There is a huge range of activities already on offer at the centre. We are also in the process of trying to introduce new classes in response to a questionnaire which was circulated in the community at the time we took over the centre."

The meeting is open to anyone with an interest.
