Local History Night

An audience of thirty people last night heard Norman Atkinson, Angus Council's Senior Services Manager for Cultural Services, give an illustrated talk about the Celtic period. Norman started at Glamis with illustrations of the several Celtic Christian stones discovered there, and their relationship to St. Fergus, before moving Westwards to the now disused churches of Eassie and then Nevay (Kirkinch). Finally he explained about recent findings around Denoon and briefly commented on their significance in resolving previous misconceptions about a small church there.
The event was capped off with refreshments and a pleasant social period.

Thanks go to Norman Atkinson himself for agreeing to give his well received presentation, to Fiona Brown for arranging the event and to Miriam Cosgrove and Diane Ryan for organising and serving refreshments. John Duffy introduced our speaker and Mary Marshall gave the vote of thanks.
Our series of monthly talks resume in October, just prior to Halloween, with one on the habits and life cycle of bats.
[Corrected Duntrune to Denoon, and date of bat meeting 20/04/2007]
