January : Appointment of New Director
At the January OSF Board meeting, Heather Woodbridge was appointed as a new director.
Heather is a recent graduate of The University of Stirling with a 1st Class degree in Ecology and has a special interest in population biology. She grew up on the island of North Ronaldsay and was immersed in it’s unique community agriculture with her parents keeping a flock of native sheep. Currently living in Orkney, Heather is the coordinator for the 2018 North Ronaldsay Sheep Festival, taking over from Kate Traill Price who was behind the hugely successful 2016 and 2017 festivals. Having studied ‘Muisikk’ in Voss, Norway, Heather also provides private tuition for the fiddle and mandolin in Kirkwall. She is also a Director of the North Ronaldsay Trust and a member of the North Ronaldsay Community Association.
We are looking forward to working with her!
