News from Colinton Local History Society

Anyone recognise any faces from the class of 1936 at Colinton Public School? We know that one chap is David Dickson because his name is on the back of the photo, but does anyone have other ideas?

After five successful Zoom meetings this session, we hope our next session - a Film Night featuring films of local events including the 1995 900th Anniversary Pageant and other local scenes plus a showing of Redrawing Edinburgh, the story of the 1920 boundary changes - will be live in Dreghorn Hall on January 17th, subject to any further Covid restrictions. Note that this a change from the previously advertised date. New members welcome! More details to follow.  

You will find details of all our talks for the 2021/22 season on our Events page.

We are always very happy to welcome new members to the Society. If you are interested in joining, you can download a Membership Form here.
