End of Year Audit – Please Help

Next month we have our yearly AGM and we are reaching out to those people who are not paid up members  but support our work and events.

Friends of Monifieth House of Memories we are calling them.

If you appreciate the service provided by the Monifieth Local History Society, which includes the management & financing of the House of Memories, on behalf of the community, then why not ‘sign up’ as a Friend who supports our work in preserving the Heritage of the Angus Local Area. There is no need to become a ‘paid up member, just recognition of your support by sending us an email.

We know that we have followers of the website all over the world but it would be nice to hear from those who check the website from time to time and support the work we are doing.

Thank you for your emails in advance.

If you live locally please pop into the House of Memories and sign the form.

Tea in the Garden – Cancelled

I am greatly disappointed to advise you all that our fund raising event

‘Tea in the Garden’,  scheduled to take place on Saturday 22nd July,

due to previously unforeseen circumstances , cannot take place.

Despite planning being at an advanced stage, and attempts to change the venue, we have no option other than to cancel the project.
Consideration of Health & Safety and Legal obligations must be recognised by our group.

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.’

Tell us your memories/stories of Monifieth Public School

Public School Monifieth

Public School Monifieth

We are asking for assistance, to provide information, pictures, stories about Monifieth Public School.

There must be a vast number of ex pupils who have stories to tell about attending the school in Monifieth.. We have a fair amount of archived material already, but  we are sure that there must be people with stories to tell.
