Welcome Lorna To The Team

We are delighted to introduce Lorna Simpson who has started as our East RDO this week. We believe that Lorna will bring her skills and experience from the sport sector, specifically in athletics to the role and will enhance our development team. It is great to have the Development Team up to full capacity as we move into the summer and anticipate a busy second half of the year. Lorna is currently being inducted into Scottish Orienteering and will be in touch with all the clubs in the East Region in the near future. She is hoping to be at Craig a Barns for Scottish Championships, so do say hello if you see her!

Welcome Lorna, we are all looking forward to working with you!

East RDO appointed June 2021
