For their meeting on March 5, Lochaber Probus Club visited the Education Centre of the Lochaber Rural Complex.

After a welcoming tea and coffee, Isabel Campbell gave, what was described as, an extremely informative and entertaining presentation.

Her talk ranged from early life in Kiltarlity, post-school employment then coming to Lochaber in 1970.

She spoke of the establishment of the Auction Mart and Rural Centre in Torlundy and of future plans. Isabel was awarded an MBE in 2003 for ‘Enterprise in Lochaber’.

Following her presentation, members were shown round the centre and museum, and treated to a delicious lunch prepared and served by Isabel, June MacRaild and Alma Sorley.

Hosts at the Rural Complex were warmly thanked and each presented with a Probus mug.

Unfortunately, all future Probus Club meetings are to be cancelled until it is clear that there is no more risk from Covid-19.
