STONEHAVEN Heritage Society were able to return to St Bridget’s Hall for their meeting on February 27 after the venue had been repaired following damage it sustained in the recent flooding. Speaker was Ruaraidh Wishart of Aberdeen City & County Archives who gave an interesting talk on an educational project on World War One which is intended to use the many documents and records in the archive to show the effect of the conflict on various aspects of life and the community.
With the centenary of the start of the war to fall next year, this will be a topic to be developed further. The Society’s next meeting is on Wednesday, March 27, when the speaker will be Mary Spence on maps and mapping. As that falls during Holy Week, the meeting will be held in Fetteresso Church. Further information on the Society can be obtained from the Secretary, Gordon Ritchie, on (01569) 762971.
