Book tells historic tales of memorial hall
A book on the history of an Aberchirder hall with links to the First World War will be released this weekend.
Aberchirder historian Bob Peden’s book is titled Marnoch Memorial Hall: A Centenary History.
It has been compiled to mark the centenary of a group who joined forces to build the hall in memory of the men of Marnoch who lost their lives during the First World War.
Using more than 20 photos contributed by local people, the book highlights the village’s vibrant life before the hall use declined in the prelude to its demolition in 2003.
Priced at £8, the book will be launched at the association’s coffee morning in the Aberchirder Church Hall, Main Street, tomorrow at 10am.
It will then be available in local shops and from the author. For details visit facebook.com/foggieloan
All profits from book sales will go to projects that benefit the community.
