Aldbar WRI was formed 80 years ago in November 1931.
At that time, the institute held its meetings in Aldbar School later transferring to Pitkennedy Primary. With the closure of Pitkennedy, six years ago, it moved to Guthrie Hall near Friockheim.
On Thursday, November 10 the institute is celebrating its eightieth birthday with a meal and entertainment in Guthrie Hall.
Any former members interested in attending this event should contact the institute’s secretary, Mrs. D. Blackie, by telephoning 01356 623694 before October 15 for further information and the cost of tickets.
