Friends of Margaret Gill may like to know that the gate to the Community Garden at Culloden Library will be open from 11.30am until 1.30pm on 9 April (the anniversary of Margaret's passing) for anyone interested to view the rowan tree planted in the garden for Margaret last year. This is an informal arrangement with the Library staff - a ceremony will follow at a later date.

We are pleased to announce that our March lecture, the Margaret Gill Memorial Lecture: Dragonflies and Damselflies presented by Jonathan Willet (followed by our AGM) will take place at the Criagmonie Hotel, Annfield Road, Inverness on 16 March, starting at 7pm.

This will be precisely two years since we were obliged to cancel our 2020 AGM, and we look forward to welcoming members back to our first "offline" meeting since then.  

08 March 2022Heraldry – How and Why the Flowering?

The Lyon Court has created a year-long series of events to celebrate its 350th anniversary year, and in his lecture Gordon Casely, Heraldist and Journalist, examines both the present of the heraldry, and some of the context that’s created this present. He reflects on both the rise in grants of arms across 21st-century Scotland, as well as the growing interest in heraldry. He asks how and why this has occurred, and how arms have been put to use – and raises the dual questions of how we ensure that more people take up heraldry and gain arms. Or gain arms and then take up heraldry.

Venue: The Highland Council, Inverness Town House, High Street, Inverness, IV1 1JJ

Time: 6.30 pm registration, 7.00 pm start, 8.00 pm reception
