Putting history in the frame
A DISPLAY of photographs and memories were on show in Kinlochleven to mark a special anniversary and to help provide a little support for the elderly during the winter months.
The Kinlochleven Salvation Army has been in the area for 90 years.
Historic school and party photographs were collected and collated, and community members were invited to take a walk down memory lane last week.
Janet McIntyre is leader of the Kinlochleven branch. She said: ‘It’s been super. We moved into this hall about three years ago but we’ve had visitors from Fort William, Ballachulish and Glencoe throughout the week. It’s been so popular we’ve decided to open an extra day so people who are working can come and see.
‘ We had a lot of visitors from Abbeyfield, which was lovely as you could see the pictures sparked memories. During the summer people can get out and about more easily but when the winter comes it is very easy to stay in and that’s when depression can set in. Inviting people to these displays may not be much but it gets them out the door and then we can tell them about our coffee mornings or music evenings.
‘First and foremost, we are a church, so it is important to us to help look after our community members.’
