In line with the latest government advice on social distancing and self-isolation, the Society's Annual General Meeting, scheduled to be held on Thursday 9th April, has been postponed. It is likely that it will now be held in the early autumn before the start of the 2020-21 programme, provisionally on Thursday 3rd September. A notice will be circulated in the late summer to confirm the new date.
UPDATE: Tommy Lawton: The Forth and Clyde Canal - Past, Present and Future: Auld Kirk Museum, Barony Chambers, 2.00 pm Wednesday 18th March 2020
In the light of the most recent guidance that older people should self-isolate and unnecessary social interaction should be avoided, the Society's contribution to EDLC's Local History Month on Wednesday 18th March has unfortunately had to be cancelled. It is hoped that this talk on the Forth and Clyde Canal will be given on another occasion.
