Unfortunately just after going to print with the programme Tom Moss guest speaker at the Archaeological Society talk has had to withdraw due to work commitments. His place will be taken by well known local man and recent past president of the Archaelogical Society Ian Lowes who will give a talk on Colonel Chisholme the last of the Chisholme Family – and in addition he will touch on the history of this unique military family and their involvement in battles, feuds and raids over the centuries. This promises to be a fascinating lecture and the Reivers Committee are indebted to Ian for stepping in at short notice.
