History Society outing

MEMBERS of Monifieth Local History Society enjoyed their first organised trip of the season on Thursday afternoon.

They paid a visit to the ‘Policing the Nation’ exhibition, a display about the history of policing in Scotland held in the Lamb Gallery, University of Dundee.

This was followed by an accompanied tour of the University archives.

Marianna Buultjens thanked the archivists on behalf of the society members for what had been an informative and enjoyable afternoon.

On Wednesday (April 24) at 7 p.m. in the Community Cabin, the invited guest speaker will be John Borland, chairman of the Pictish Art Society whose chosen topic will be ‘Monifieth Stones and early Angus Pictish Sculpture’. The replica of the Monifieth Cross will be on display.

Entry to members is £2 and to non members is £3. Tea and coffee will be available.
