COM­MU­NITY mem­bers took a walk down mem­ory lane in a spe­cial event held in Lochaber Vil­lage Hall

Nether Lochaber Com­mu­nity Coun­cil hosted a me­mories week­end al­low­ing folk to rem­i­nisce how the area used to be and how it has changed through the past cen­tury.

The event, which took place in the vil­lage hall on Jan­uary 14 and 15, and in­cluded a rolling slideshow and prints of photos, maps of the vil­lage, his­tory of the area, as well as in­for­ma­tion about new projects, was de­scribed as a great suc­cess.

Iain Jen­ner said: ‘On be­half of NLCC, I would like to thank the many res­i­dents who came to visit our me­mories week­end on Jan­uary 14 and 15 at Nether Lochaber Vil­lage Hall, and made the event such an en­joy­able suc­cess.

‘In ad­di­tion, thanks must go to Jen­nifer Jarl, Ste­wart Liv­ingston and Lisa Glaze for set­ting up the ex­hi­bi­tion it­self; to Elaine Cameron and JJ for the am­ple sup­ply of home-bak­ing; and to JJ, LG and oth­ers who vol­un­teered their time to serve tea and cof­fee, and guide vis­i­tors around the in­for­ma­tion ta­bles.

‘So en­thu­si­as­tic was the re­cep­tion for our me­mories week­end slideshow and ex­hibits that an on­line ar­chive is to be set up in or­der to have a per­ma­nent record of his­toric pho­to­graphs and doc­u­ments, which res­i­dents and friends can ac­cess and con­trib­ute to. As soon as this is avail­able, a link will be posted on the NLCC’s Face­book page.’
