Thursday 16th September 2021:Old photographs of Cromarty — that you may not have seen
Following a change in Covid protocols, Cromarty History Society has organised their first talk and we will work on a month by month basis rather than publishing a prearranged programme as things still remain a bit uncertain. The first talk will be free entry.
We are gingerly starting to offer a programme of History Talks this year, beginning in September — as usual on the 3rd Thursday of the month (16 September) at the West Church Hall. Our first talk will be by Paul Monk, volunteer curator at the Courthouse, on “Old photographs of Cromarty that you may not have seen”.
We are not sure what the appetite will be for audiences going back to attending group meetings, so it’s a “suck it and see’ process.
We have a further talk arranged for October, but initially we’ll be announcing talks on a month by month basis.
Cromarty History Society meets in the West Church Hall, Cromarty at 7.30pm on the the third Thursday of each month, September - April.
