At last Wednesday’s Heritage club, a full house greeted Dr David Northcroft from Muchalls who gave an illustrated talk on his “Grampian Lives” project. He had interviewed over 300 people from Kincardineshire to Moray dealing with memories and experiences between 1900 and 1950. A second volume covering from 1950 to the present will be published around Christmas 2013.

Among the interviewees in volume one were Arthur Bruce and the late Dorothy Stuart from Laurencekirk.
