I apologise if i have missed anything or made a spelling mistake, I have no medical knowledge. Looking for all patients for the last 30yrs to show how much Caithness has used the hospital over the years. Please join as many categories as fits. I myself will be in 3, 5, 8 and 9 with my kids. If you can't come tell someone your categories and they can stand in your place. Categories are going to be photographed one at a time and time will be given to move around if you are in more than one.

Then a big overall photo of everyone who joins us.

Everyone has been so kind with offers of help, baking, bottles and raffle prizes, we will be having a couple of stalls for the above. Chat members will be at the Bignold park from 1:00pm if you would like to drop anything off or send us a pm and we can arrange collection. Amazing community spirit as always.

Please share, share, share. Lets make our voice seen & heard. See you all on Sunday.
