Friends of G&AHC – 2014 Talks & Events
Friends of G&AHC was formally constituted during 2014, and the committee quickly got down to the task of organising a programme of talks and social events. This has resulted in raising almost £400 towards the running of the Heritage Centre.
Fun items included a quiz on the local area and the brightly-coloured loom bands made by our enterprising secretary Hazel Young has been very popular with our young visitors.
Talks included: David Gillies – Cartographer & Historian. David spent many years working in the UK, Africa and Australia drawing maps from aerial and satellite photographs. His talk and impressive power-point presentation identified old dwellings and industrial sites of the 1800′s in the local area, to see what was still visible today and what has changed over the years.
