Newletter 6th November 2018

The subject is somewhat lighter this week, after last week’s  excellent article  by the Reverend Elizabeth Cairns about how we should care for the environment.

Duncansby Stacks… start of the North Highland Way

The North Highland Way

The project is making progress, despite some setbacks.  There is a new photographic competition to raise funds for Friends of the North Highland Way – see nice gentle man at the Castle Arms Hotel in Mey said he would help out… good man. Now the new owner at Dunnet Head is on board, maybe we can make progress.

Some of the difficulties at Dunnet Head will be published in a new book due out at the end of November 2018.  Satire, really, so I am told really funny…. watch this space.


A new Portadown page has been launched witachesonh its links to Spain.   Anne Acheson is a very famous woman from Portadown.  She was a sculptress and developed plaster of Paris.  There was a very interesting programme about her on BBC2 on Sunday last.   There is to be an exhibition dedicated to her in April / May 2019 in Portadown.

The folk in Portadown certainly know how to party.   The author also went to an excellent Bluegrass concert at Mullavilly church near Portadown.  She is now preparing for the 11th November remembrance parade and has bought herself a QARANC beret and grey trouser suit.  At least she will sort of look like a QA.


Mullavilly Church have brought out a book to raise funds for a permanent memorial at the church to the soldiers from the village who died in WWII.
