Local History Group Set For Ninth Season

Aberchirder’s history season gets under way on Wednesday 5th November, when former local minister Bob Jones will give an illustrated talk on the Disruption and Foggie’s part in it. Bob played a major role in the celebrations held in 1992 to mark the famous walkout at Marnoch two centuries before and the nationwide split in the Kirk that followed.

The meeting takes place in the Community Pavilion at 7:30 pm, and new members are always welcome.
