|Locals invited to SNH reception|
|Local people in and around Harris are being invited along to an evening reception by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) in the Harris Hotel at 7.00 on Thursday 25 March 2010.
Andrew Thin, SNH chairman, will host the event, along with local area manager David Maclennan, and local advisor Iain Mackinnon.
Andrew Thin said: "The evening will provide an opportunity for informal discussion about the work of SNH in the area, what we do and why; giving people the opportunity to raise issues relating to the natural environment which are of interest to them. This is about making senior people in SNH more accessible to the public and is also a really useful way for us to keep in touch with public perceptions of the organisation. We certainly hope many people will be able to come along and we look forward to meeting them on the night."
Scottish Natural Heritage is the Scottish Government's advisor on the management, enjoyment, understanding and sustainable use of Scotlandís wildlife, natural habitats and landscape.
The event is free and light refreshments will be provided
