Fraserburgh Heritage Centre - Doors Open Day
Sunday, 17th September 2017
Fraserburgh Heritage Society Ltd is delighted to once again be taking part in Aberdeenshire Doors Open Day at Fraserburgh Heritage Centre.
This year sees the year of architecture and also a focus on Fraserburgh 2021 – the regeneration of the town centre.
With this in mind, the knowledgeable volunteers at the Centre are offering free guided bus tours of the regeneration area in buses kindly donated by Watermill Coaches.
Seating is limited to 24 in each tour, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
You can reserve your seat by phoning 01346 512888.
Tours will leave at 12 noon, 1 pm and 2 pm and each one will last roughly 40 minutes.
Leaving from the Heritage Centre it will proceed along the places of note along Shore Street, coming up by the Dalrymple Hall to the Leisure Centre Car Park, along Seaforth Street and Broad Street, down the brae by the Royal Hotel and along Shore Street before turning up Kirk Brae and into Saltoun Square where the main regeneration is to take place.
Travelling back down Broad Street to the Royal Hotel Brae and onto Shore Street returning to the Heritage Centre.
As well as being of historic interest of the architecture, they will highlight the improvements which will be taking place in the regeneration area.
Inside the Heritage Centre will be entertainment from the ever popular Ugie Folk Group and an exciting display of Memories of 1992.
Already the Centre has many photos of the Quatercentenary on permanent view and this extended display will include much formerly unseen documentation, costumes, programmes, photos etc of what was a marvellous community celebration.
There will also be a book in which you can record any special memory of 1992
All admission on Sunday 17th September is free.
