“Monifieth’s Answer to the V&A”

Was a comment made by a visitor to the House of Memories this month.

The President told the Management Committee before giving her monthly report.                                    

President’s Report.

Last month I said “Life was all Ups and Downs”, and that certainly describes what our group have faced during the month of June. The visitors to the House of Memories are steady, with more holiday makers in Monifieth, and local people showing interest in our work.

The Medieval Fair highlighted Sunday opening being popular for those who work during the week. We have had some interest from people who are considering becoming volunteers. This is encouraging , and as one lady said “The House of Memories is so special to Monifieth, it would be dreadful if it was lost to the Community for the lack of support by a few giving some of their time”. She is considering giving us some of hers.

My disappointment being advised that over the years we have held the fund raising “Tea in the Garden” event, through storm and tempest and occasional sunshine, we have not considered our responsibility of Public Liability. The cost of insurance to cover accidents involving members of the public would not be feasible, and with the awareness of legal litigation for accidental injuries, we had no option other than cancel the event. We do have the necessary insurance cover for the House of Memories.

Future fund raising , ” Back to the drawing board” as the saying goes. I’m certain that your reports will cover that we are still able to provide some very good services, free of charge to not only the people locally, but nationally and internationally.

Thank you all for giving your time and talents to the Monifieth Local History Society.

Management Meeting Friday 7thJuly 2017

 

 

President’s Report June 2017

Monifieth Local History Society/ House of Memories Management Meeting.

Friday 10 am 9th June 2017.

President’s Report.

Thank you all for being here. Sometimes when we wish so hard for things, the wish is granted and then backfires causing even bigger problems. This was brought home to me with the idea my garden was so dry and it needed rain to make the flowers flourish. Now I wish the “Rain rain would go to Spain”

Monifieth Local History Society is something we all care about by voluntarily giving of our time, varied skills and talents. Over the years from our combined efforts it has flourished. In the past five weeks this has become quite apparent through the number of requests for information, visitors to the House of Memories and invitations to take part in local events. We are providing a much appreciated service to the Community at large. Local residents and businesses have shown interest in supporting our objectives of ‘preserving the past for the future’.

What we now need is the Community at large to respond to our needs.

So far we have been fortunate enough to raise financial funding from varied sources to maintain and manage our Community project, without going ‘begging for cash’, and my wish would be that long may that continue. What we do need however is more volunteers from the Community, by the giving of their time, to assist in keeping the House of Memories open daily free of charge to all those wishing to view our on show displays, and reference information sources.

Since our last management meeting we have been successful in recruiting volunteers purely on a trial basis. A positive step forward in the right direction. Perhaps with our involvement in the future Community events we might encourage others.

I will make one wish that I sincerely hope will be granted.

That Saturday 22nd July will find the Rain on Holiday in Spain.

Yes to  ‘ Tea in the Garden.’

No to  ‘ Tea in the Monsoon.’
