Heritage Centre Awareness Campaign – We’re on the Move Again!

To continue the momentum created by the pilot in September last year, there will be an on-going photographic display within the lower public walkway corridors of the Rothes Halls from March 14th – until most likely August/September this year. With the launch of ‘Friends of GAHC’ to follow soon afterwards. The photographs will be depicted in their decades and hope they will prove to be a ‘must see’ for all these interested in the history of the area.
