Moving to Loanhead in 2003, Catriona took redundancy in May 2014 and was looking for something refreshingly different when the opportunity for this role came along. “It seemed right up my street, developing relationships, being a friendly face, offering support, organising events etc. Encouraging people to join the church family that I really enjoy being a part of.”
