We would like to welcome The Buzz Project to the forum. A great community project helping young people reach their full potential. More details can be found on their forum section with links to their social media sites as well as their website.
Welcome to the newly created Lochaber Forum.
Born of an idea from the Facebook page Lochaber Revisited about a forum for people to discuss their ideas. The seed was sown to set up a simple forum.
It became apparent while creating the site that perhaps an even better way to serve the Lochaber Area would be to have a forum for the whole area. A forum where any organisation, sports club or other public service could have a forum for folk to contact, engage or discuss things, with each individual forum being moderated and controlled by it's owners.
Then the idea sprang to mind that it would be great to have a What's On section where registered venue's could post their own events and keep the area up to date of what is on (great for residents and tourists alike). Again once registered, venues will be able to create events on the calendar without first seeking permission.
Why stop there... Also added was the Local News section, where organisations, sports clubs etc. can keep us informed of developements that involve or interest Lochaber.
So what is the cost to the users of the site, the forum, events and news? Absolutely nothing. There will be no cost to use the site either now or in the future.
How do you get your organistation or venue registered and permissions set? Registration is easy, you can either login with your Facebook credentials or take 30 seconds to register if Facebook isn't your thing. Post a message on the forum with your requirements and we can set you up with your needs, either a forum, permissions to create events or even the local news articles which Lochaber residents may be interested in reading. in some cases you may wish to have permissions to publish on all parts of the site.
However, please remember that the site is in it's infancy and some features will be added in the near future and some may get considered if requests are made in the Site Feedback section on the Forum.
Our latest member is the Sunart Centre in Strontian which has posted 3 events that sound like excellent nights out!
Check out their events in the "What's On" section which has all the details of the events and all the details of how to book tickets.
