Cumnock Community Action Plan
We now have several members from the CHG who have volunteered to be on the CCAP Steering Group. We will keep you informed of developments.
Help celebrate the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Burgh of Cumnock in 1866 by joining our Flickr Group and posting your photos of Cumnock as it is today. Have a look here: www.flickr.com/groups/cumnock2016
Cumnock History Group are creating a bank of photos of the Cumnock of today to document the town, its people and institutions - a social history resource for the future.
We would like to invite you to meet the History Group on Saturday 20th June at 2pm in the Town Hall Cumnock.
Come and see what we are doing and get out and about with your cameras or phones and record what you see in Cumnock between June 2015
CHG membership drive
As of April, as decided at our AGM, if you wish to remain a member of CHG there is a yearly subscription of £10 to pay which can be completed on the site through Paypal - you don't need a Paypal account to do this. Paypal is safe and secure.
It is very important to remember that once you have made the payment that you click on the 'Return to Cumnock History Group" text link where you can re-register your membership details on our database.
Sorry if this is annoying!
If you prefer to send a cheque it should be payable to Cumnock History Group at 4 Gemmell Avenue, Cumnock, East Ayrshire, KA18 1E. Along with the queque you should send your full postal address, including postcode and your email address.
To all those who have paid their membership a big - Thank You : )
