There was a wonderful turnout with all seats filled.
Thanks to everyone who came.
If your article did not appear this time, it will appear in a future issue. We have had such a great response from people sending stories and photos that we simply ran out of space to fit it all in. This shows us that everyone is enjoying the magazine and our time and effort is being rewarded.
Many thanks also go to John Reid, who gave us a talk on the Baronies of Seabegs and Castlecary. (Seabegs being of particular interest to several of our group members!)
GHS will be launching the new edition of Bonnyseen on
Wednesday 23rd October 2013
Launch night will be in the Community Centre from 7-9pm
There will be a talk by John Reid on Seabegs and Castlecary.
This was the talk we should have had in April, but due to John having lost his voice, the planned talk was changed to a most interesting film, by John, on Kincardine and Tulliallan.
There will be a raffle and an a small exhibition of some of our archive items and photos. (and some 'nibbles')
It will be a pleasant and informative night out and everyone, of any age, is most welcome.
So come and join us. You never know what you might find out.....and you might be able to shed some light on some of the history of Bonnybridge.
Oh......I nearly forgot.......if you can't pick up a magazine (FREE) you can also view them online for FREE. The new magazine will also be on the website (eventually) atwww.greenhillhistoricalsociety.org.ukand click on Bonnyseen!
It has taken a bit of time and there is not much, in the way of content, there for now. I cleared everything for the time being, as it was imperative to try and get the Bonnyseen magazines viewable online, and that was my main aim.
I was making sure that bit worked without being hampered by the rest. Now that I know that works, I can now put back the pages.
The next item on the agenda will be the new magazine.
are looking for ideas and suggestions for fund raising.
rely on kind donations to enable us to publish and produce the Bonnyseen
magazine and offer for FREE.
articles for the next issue are coming along but we welcome any stories and
photos for further editions. If you have a story, however vague your recollection
may be, please let us know. We can research your 'memory' and perhaps shed a
bit more light on what you think you remember. However obscure!
