Janice Miller: Lennoxtown Friendly Victualling Society: Thursday 1st November 2018

Founded in 1812, the Lennoxtown Friendly Victualling Society was one of the earliest co-operative societies in Scotland. It operated for 153 years and was at one point proclaimed the oldest co-op in the world. Janice Miller, East Dunbartonshire Leisure & Culture's Archivist, will tell its story using various resources including the 1960s co-op film 'Tomorrow is Yours'. 

Evening meetings of the Society are at 7.30 pm in the Park Centre, 45 Kerr Street, Kirkintilloch, G66 1LF. The annual membership subscription is £10 with an admission fee of £3 per meeting for visitors who are welcome at all of the Society's activities.

The Society's September 2018 Newsletter

The September 2018 edition of the Society's newsletter has recently been created and edited by committee member Valerie McClure and gives information on the activities of the Antiquaries since the AGM. It can be viewed or downloaded by clicking on the image below.

The newsletter was circulated to those members of the Society who had responded positively to the Secretary's request in May concerning the use of their email addresses for receiving communications; an action necessary following the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation 2018. The list of active email addresses will be updated using the information supplied on the renewal slips for the 2018-19 session.
