Strathblane Heritage Society
Strathblane Heritage Society was formed in 1993 by Murray O'Donnell and Alison Dryden with a stated aim of promoting an awareness of the history of the Parish of Strathblane.
With frequent visits to the local archives and lengthy conversations with the local worthies, slowly a picture was put together of a parish that had an exciting past. This information can be found in the history section of this website.
The Strathblane Heritage Society has held a number of exhibitions in the parish, created a display for the library, as well as participating in various activities with the local primary school children. Murray O'Donnell and Lynne Arrol wrote a play based on the life of the Calico Printworks and this was performed by the Blane Valley Players to much acclaim.
The Heritage Society continues to look for information on the Parish, the most recent being finding on Ebay of all places details of a Rayon Factory that was planned for the area in 1950.
The Heritage society meets once a month during the winter months on Wednesdays at 7:30pm in the village club.
Anyone is welcome to come along to the meetings. Membership is £5 per year (£3 if retired). Non members who come to meetings are asked to either join or make a donation.
