Musselburgh Transition Toun has formed a new communications team.
With a core group of three creative/marketing professionals already volunteering to get things started, we'd also like to involve local writers and photographers who may not have used social media, or written for the web before and want to learn.

This skills development project is free. If you'd like more information, please get in touch.
