Artefacts appeal for Strichen Community Park

Strichen Community Park committee is on the lookout for artefacts and mementoes of past times in the village of Strichen and surrounding areas.

Secretary Stan Tennant, says it was hoped that the group would be combining the local annual Fun Day in the park with a Homecoming Scotland event in August next year.

“We are intending to have a marquee in the park to house a selection of photographs and mementoes of past times in this area”, he says.

“We are appealing to local people who may have some photographs, pictures or other interesting artefacts which we can borrow for the day to exhibit for visitors and locals alike.”

Stan says that great care will be taken of the artefacts and that they would be returned to their rightful owners as soon as the event was over. Anyone in a position to temporarily donate items for exhibiting should call him on 01771 637749 or email him at stan.tennant@btinternet.com
