We have exiting news this month having been awarded a highly commended Certificate at the Scottish Heritage Angel Awards. This is a highly prestigious award and we are thrilled that we have one for Logie. Thanks is due to everyone who has contributed to the work since we began in 2007. In preparation for the award ceremony a short video film was made on site. You should be able to see our film and those of other award winners on the Scottish Heritage Angels web page by the end of October. We also hope to be able to show it at the AGM.
We had two assessment visits this year from the new Historic Environment Scotland HES formerly Historic Scotland they have praised the work that has been done on site and have re-designated the entire site as "scheduled" which will remove the anomaly of part being listed and pat being scheduled when applying for funding etc.
The new "Friends of Stirling Historic Graveyards" group is currently being constituted and it is hoped that an application for funding towards all the work needed, including our back boundary wall may be made in the spring.
Over 250 visitors came on site during the summer months and as always we are delighted when we can meet up with descendants of families with stones in Logie.
The winter months are always a little quieter but there is still a lot of administration and paper work going on behind the scenes and we have
these dates for your diary.
MONDAY 13th NOVEMBER 7PM. Will be the AGM in the halls at Logie when you will have a chance to meet Rev. Ruth Halley who will take over the chair and we hope to be able to show the Heritage Angel Film
SATURDAY 9TH DECEMBER 10AM. Is the annual CHRISTMAS MARKET in the church halls. This year we have several totes of good quality brand new goods and gifts from a house clearance. If you are looking for a bargain do come along and have a look and do a little shopping.
Copies of Logie The First 1000 Years are still available at a cost of £5 and there is an order form on the web site.
