AGM time - Once again it is time to write a report for the AGM. In addition to the meetings posts I would like to draw attention to the following points. Assuming Church of Scotland plans are adhered to in this instance, Dunnichen Church will close in August 2011. No progress has been made on future uses or directions, so if anyone has any suggestions please let us know.
Several people have been in touch from further afield - we are very interested in where former Dunnichen citizens went etc so if you can add to our knowledge of this again let us know.
