Pentlands SWRI has received £200 from property company Ross and Liddell’s community bursary scheme. It paid for a portable sound system for its monthly meetings. Vice president Janet Burke said: “Pentlands WRI is just a small group of women. We could not afford expenditure on such equipment. The purchase of the portable PA system will now help with the sound system at all our meetings, as some members were having difficulty hearing some of our speakers.
“Looking to the future, we are confident that we can now attract new, and hopefully younger, women to swell our membership”.
The group meets in Penicuik Town Hall on the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm.
