Stories about remarkable local ladies

Find out more about East Dunbartonshire’s remarkable women at Milngavie Library on Wednesday, April 1.

From well-known women to unsung heroes, East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust invite you to delve into the past and discover the untold stories.

Chair of East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust, Scott Hill said: “Join us for tea, coffee, biscuits and informal discussion on who are the local women that you most remember and why? Where did they live and what did they do? How are they remembered? The sessions are free and I’m sure will be fascinating.”

This friendly, social, informal free event will include short talks, a fun women’s quiz, discussion and hands on activities to give you an introduction to Glasgow Women’s Library and some of the women’s heritage projects that are happening across Scotland, including the new interactive Women of Scotland website that maps monuments to women across Scotland.

The event at Milngavie Library, Allander Road, will run from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

Convener of Development and Regeneration, Councillor Alan Moir, said: “This is a must for anyone interested in the history of our area and the famous women who helped shape it and make it the place it is today.

“I hope men aren’t put off by the title as everyone is welcome!”
