East Church meets a wider public
The East Church has been getting a good public airing over the last few weeks with appearances on BBC Alba, at the Cromarty History Society, on the Rural Gateway website and at a kirkyard conservation gathering.
The public noticeboard at the church has certainly been proving effective, as the sighting by a BBC worker of the notice about the kirkyard conservation workshop led to BBC Alba coming along to make a newspiece for the channel.
Helen Bradley of Archaeology Scotland led the kirkyard conservation workshop, giving useful information and encouraging lively discussion amongst the participants from Cromarty and Resolis . All of those that came along are keen to get involved in finding out more about the kirkyard and thinking about how best to manage it.
David and Caroline gave a talk to the Cromarty History Society and enjoyed the questions about progress and finds at the church. The interpretation panels got their first airing too - as always with these things you see some things that you'd like to tweek once they are on display - but on the whole they look pretty good!
The panels will be on show at the Cromarty Courthouse during the summer - so if you are in Cromarty make sure you pop in and take a look. The Courthouse is undergoing major exhibiton changes at the moment, and they are opening free this year -well worth a visit.
