Go along to Westerton Fairlie Parish Church on Wednesday (September 3) to hear some untold stories about women from East Dunbartonshire.

This free event from 6.30pm to 9pm will give people a chance to find out which women helped to build Scotland and how many of them came from East Dunbartonshire. You can also discover how they are remembered now.

This friendly and informal event will include talks, a women’s history quiz, discussion and hands on activities including creating your own local map of women whose stories deserve to be remembered.

Participants will also get 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.

This GWL opportunity is part of East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust’s Trails and Tales programme which is supported by the Heritage lottery Fund and Creative Scotland. The 3 year programme will lead to the development of a series of new sculpture and arts heritage trails across the local authority.
