Be part of the story... with Back in the Day

SINCE its launch back in March 2009, the Buchan Observer’s hugely-popular Back in the Day publication has gone from strength to strength.

Packed full of nostalgia from the North-east communities, Back in the Day features everything from old school pictures to business workforces, fishing vessels and crew from the past to tales from bygone country estates.

It has also unearthed fascinating tales from Prisoner of War camps at Stuartfield and Crimond and even told the incredible tale of General Sir John Theodosius Burnett Stuart.

But Back in the Day is only a success with YOUR support. We always require the input of local readers to ensure these rich memories are kept alive forever for future generations to enjoy.

Whether you have an old class picture from the 1960s, a treasured tale from the fishing or simply some insight into your family tree, Back in the Day wants to hear from you.

And remember - nostalgia is not simply about 50 years ago and more.

One of our most popular features is the 1970s and 80s picture spreads from the Buchanie files which always bring a smile to the faces of those captured on film!

So don’t hide your history away - get it featured in print for all to see and enjoy.

If you have a picture you woud like scanned simply pop into our offices at 28-30 Seagate, Peterhead, and we will scan it while you wait.
