THE battle has begun to save Longmore Hall in Keith.
The Rotary Club of Keith is the first group to signal its desire to get involved in running the facility for the community.
That declaration came at a public meeting earlier this week called by Councillor Theresa Coull and Moray MSP Richard Lochhead.
Unless individuals or groups come forward to declare an interest in taking on the hall from Moray Council, it will close at the end of June.
The council cannot afford to run the hall as it looks to save millions from its budget.
