Since July the Trustees of GAHC have been busy setting-up in their permanent home at 18 Lyon Way, Kingdom Shopping Centre and on 2nd November 2013, we celebrated the launch of the Heritage Centre when Tricia Marwick, first Lady Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament formally ‘cut the ribbon’.

ROTHES HALLS from MONDAY 14th MARCH
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.
