LIPS given a breath of life
NEW life has been breathed into the Low Isles Preservation Society (LIPS) with the election of a new committee.
The group was in danger of folding after a number of committee members resigned.
But at the 11th hour Adrian Soffe has stepped in as the new president and Dr Mark Colbridge has agreed to take on the role as secretary.
After the recent resignation of the Low Isles caretaker Rick Kilpatrick, LIPS is also calling for enthusiastic volunteers to fill in as temporary rangers until a new caretaker is found.
LIPS committee member Rob Sutherland said anyone who wants to get involved as a volunteer needs to come forward as soon as possible as they have to be trained.
“We really need about 30 volunteers to step forward to be trained so we can cover our roster system for volunteers,” he said.
A committee meeting was held last night at 7pm to determine how best to use volunteers and the exact role they would play at Low Isles.
