www.logieogg.com update  15/04/2021
.
The site has been looking at its best over the past few weeks with the daffodils in full bloom. It was such a pity that there could not have been a service on site for Palm Sunday but at last there is hope on the horizon that restrictions will be lifted, and we will be opening again soon. Last year we undertook Covid risk assessments and put some protection measures in place
These will remain for this summer . The You Tube tour of the site has now had 110 viewers with positive comments. If you have not seen it yet , it is available on   
You Tube we have produced a virtual tour of the site
called Guided Tour of logieogg 2
There are still plenty of copies of the History book called LOGIE THE FIRST 1000 YEARS for sale at a cost of 5 including postage. They are also available on site during summer open days.
As we have been unable to have work days, there is some work needed on site before the open days. All restrictions permitting , we plan to have one work day before July, and we would ask for as many volunteers as possible to come along and help prepare the site. For this year only it would be useful if you could email and let me know if you are able to come along to help. We propose that we hold the work-day on Saturday 29th May as usual between 10am and 12noon. Should the weather be against us that would allow us to try again on Saturday 5th June. The usual health and safety rules will apply.
All being well the summer open afternoons will again run between 2pm and 5pm on Sunday afternoons during July and August. If you are able to come along on one of these afternoons to welcome our visitors , give out guide leaflets or help with a tour please e-mail me with your preferred date.
September is archaeology month and we have agreed to open on Saturday 11th September 10am till 4pm with work at 10am to 12 noon and on Sunday 12th September 2pm till 5pm. All these dates will be advertised in the local press, the Web site and Face book.
As we were unable to have a service on site last June it has been decided to change things a little and hold a Sunday afternoon service on site in the ruin on SUNDAY 5th SEPTEMBER at a time to be confirmed in the next news letter, invitations will be sent to local churches and the service will be advertised as above. 
Although it is a long way away an AGM is a legal requirement, and we are planning on holding this on either 2nd or 4th November depending on hall availability and this will be confirmed later. We are however delighted Murray Cook has again offered to present an illustrated talk for us.
Planning has been started but we do appreciate that there could be unforeseen problems ahead which could bring restrictions or cancellations . The Web site will be updated regularly, and intimations will appear in the Stirling Observer. A news update with confirmations will be sent out during June

Thanks again to everyone
