News Letter AUGUST 22
The new fence in the north -east corner has now been completed and painted making the corner much neater. It has been designed so that if ever funding becomes available for the full repair of the banking and wall it can be lifted to sit on top of the wall as per the structural engineer's design.
There has been a mixed attendance at the open days so far. For the first time ever we had one Sunday with no visitors but the two large parties that came along at the beginning of August more than made up for that.
We are sorry that our friend Barbara Docherty of the cemeteries Department is retiring, we will miss her. The group gave a small canvas print of the Kirk and Kirkyard as a token of our appreciation for her help over the years. We wish her a long and happy retirement. At the same time ,we are glad to be working with Tam Rennie who we know well and are sure that he will continue to support us in the work at Logieogg.
