Commemorating and recording the impact of the First World War on South Loch Ness Commemorating and recording the impact of the FirstWorld War on South Loch Ness In the centenary year of the start of the First WorldWar, the Heritage Group would like to do something to remember, research and record the ways in which the war affected South Loch Ness and those living in the area. Alister Chisholm 01463 715713 alister.chisholm@btinternet.com would be very pleased to have any suggestions as to how such a project could be tackled. Please get in touch with him with any ideas.

First, the positive – in recent years, the Group has managed to put on an interesting illustrated presentation every spring and autumn, plus a summer outing.   Alister Chisholm keeps adding to our superb website, which has attracted many comments of appreciation and praise.   For some years he has produced excellent heritage calendars featuring old photos from South Loch Ness.   The Group still has large stocks of two publications – Alan Lawson’s ‘A Country called Stratherrick’ and ‘South Loch Ness’, our own local heritage guide.

BUT… over the last few years our committee has slowly dwindled – we had four at our last meeting, and one of these is leaving.   We have had no secretary for some time.   Most seriously, Frank Ellam, our treasurer is leaving the area, and although the treasurer’s duties are not onerous, we can’t function without one.

In view of this situation, we are calling an open meeting in Stratherrick Hall, Gorthleck, on Monday 12th September at 7.30pm to discuss the Group’s future.   Attendance at events suggests continuing interest in our Group, but we need more help with running it or closing it down may be the only option.   Please do come along and offer us your help.

Alan Findlay, chair.
