With so much work going on into various projects behind the scenes, and with continued covid disruption, there has sadly been less membership interaction in the last few months. Thankfully, many major projects are now coming to an end, and Edinburgh have resumed their face to face meetings for members.
Today, 5th April 2022, the website has been updated with the latest batch of research archives from Henry E Kelly & Douglas Leishman.
The member’s section now also hosts images from the Tam Ward pottery collection, and we encourage other members to come forward with photographs and archives for digitisation. Members can opt to be named, or anonymous.
SPHR 28 is now with a printer, and the latest edition of the Scottish Pottery Historical Review should be with members very soon.
There is also a great deal of work going in to the Maryhill Burgh Hall exhibition, due to take place in July 2022.
All of this work is being taken forward by our excellent volunteers who have taken on various sub-committee roles within the Society. These roles are open to all members. As ever, we would be enormously grateful if you would consider devoting some time to one of our sub-committees, or Council, to help with the Society’s various functions. This could be on our publication sub-committee, our website sub-committee, or assisting one of our regional operations.
Digitisation is a huge focus for the Society at the moment, as we work to ensure the huge archive of research documents are preserved for future study. Many thousands of images and documents are being uploaded on to our website for members.
Our sincere thanks to Tam Ward, for photographing and displaying his fantastic collection – and to all of those members on Council and sub-committees, who have worked particularly hard this year to get information out for the Society’s 50 year anniversary in 2022.
