Joan Lawrie and Marion O'Brien
“The town is in flux”, the major employer is shutting down and depopulation is a real issue. It’s against this background, Joan Lawrie and Marion O’Brien stopped by to tell me about Thurso Community Development Trust. The rapid progress from community consultation through to the establishing a community benefit society has been an exciting story. Joan and Marion have their own unique contributions in the telling of this story so far. And, of course, we talk about how the community has handled the challenges of the last year.
