We’d like to thank everyone who came along to our first drop-in archive session at Campbeltown Hall on Monday, 1st of July. We had a fantastic turn out of around of 4o people, some of whom travelled from as far away as Blairgowrie and Dunoon. The session, thanks to those of you who came along, turned up lots of new photos and documents which we will be scanning and uploading onto the online archive in due course. There were also lots of stories too and we hope that the folks who came along will be writing some of those up for the archive.
If you didn’t make it along then please come along to our next session will take place on 5th August – see details here.
Kenny Craig, of Kintyre Connections, came along to take photos of the event and these can be viewed here.
