The Cullen, Deskford and Portknockie Heritage Group was formed in 1990. From a small group of enthusiasts the Group has grown to over 50 members and has recently gained charitable status. The objectives of the Group are to advance and promote the heritage of the local area, and, with its considerable collection of photographs, documents and artefacts, the Group regularly provides displays, presentations and talks in the local community.
The Group usually meets on the first Monday of each month from September to May at 2 p.m. at the Hall Church, York Place, Cullen where members discuss a wide range of heritage-related topics.
The Group would be pleased to welcome new members, and would be grateful for the opportunity to copy your photographs and documents that add to the heritage of the area and not necessarily of years past – tomorrow’s heritage starts today.
From July 1st to July 31st our summer exhibition will be running in the Memorial Hall in Cullen.
Please see our posters and Facebook page for further information throughout the year. Cullen, Deskford and Portknockie Heritage.
There have been several enquiries about the books available from the Heritage Group. These are available from many of the local shops but others may wish to purchase on-line. If so, the details are below:
The usual charge for delivery is £1.00 p&p per book but large numbers may have different rates due to weight.
If you are interested in purchasing any items please contact Ann Mowat at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you have any old photographs of the local area? We are especially looking for more natural action pictures rather than posed portraits; but if you have anything of interest, would you be willing to lend it to us?
Any loaned photographs will be treated with great respect, scanned and added to our archive.
If you can help with this, please contact anyone on the CDPHG Committee.
If you want to know more about the group and keep up to date with what is going on, please go onto Facebook and search for Cullen Deskford and Portknockie Heritage.
The expansion of the Photo Archive - more photos would be very welcome, as well as help on researching the photos already received (names of people etc); originals will be scanned and returned immediately.
