A big thank you to our volunteers

leaving partyTraditionally, at this time of year, the Society thanks its volunteers by holding a Christmas lunch. This year's volunteers' party was organised by Robert and Janet, to also mark their retirement from the library and archives after 16 years. There was a delicious buffet, one of Janet's fiendish quizzes, and a chance for volunteers, staff and management board members to chat.

A few years ago we began a 'volunteer of the year' award to recognise the contribution of our volunteers. This year's volunteer of the year is Morag Fyfe, who efficiently processes new journals and magazines coming into the library, so that they can be shelved and made available for consultation by readers.

The Society is very grateful to those who give their time and expertise for free to assist staff with running the library and archives. In the new year we hope to come up with new volunteer projects and find new ways for volunteers to support the Society's activities.
