Many thanks to Irene Innes for inviting me to deliver a lecture to this year’s annual joint meeting of Largs & District Historical Society and the North Ayrshire Family History Group.
Monday evening was bitterly cold but members braved the icy roads and packed the hall to learn about oral history and some of the wonderful community projects that have been done across Scotland. Their enthusiasm and insightful questions were a joy to behold, and when some of the members shared their own stories of growing up in and around Largs – well, that was the icing on the cake for me!
Sincere thanks and very best wishes to Irene and everyone who came along and gave me such a warm reception, including the lovely ladies who did the catering!
