The 23rd July event was a big success, thanks in a large part to the beautiful weather. We had some visitors from Canada as well as a lady whose uncle is related to John Rae, more of this story hopefully on Radio Orkney who were there. Free coffee and Tea as well as home bakes were very welcome and guided tours of the Hall were provided by our President and Chairman.
