Memorial flowers

A few months ago we were contacted by Ruth Pottinger via Facebook messenger she asked:

"Hi, I was wondering if you could help me. My friends father past away with terminal cancer the other day and he was a huge fan of John Rae and when I was last visiting I took down photos of his home and new statue in Stromness. My friends mum asked me if I could lay some flowers in memory of Bill (her husband) at Clestrain John Raes home? I have a day off on Monday and wondered if I could lay some flowers there then if at all possible? Thank you and look forward to hearing back from you. Ruth"

At the time we did not own the Hall but asked the owners if this would be ok which it was and so Ruth went up there and had a private ceremony and kindly took some photos for the web site.

John Rae is still touching peoples lives to this day.13977797 10210125869282530 546038119 o
