There is another opportunity to catch local historian John Riddell's talk on the history of the Fife boat yard in Fairlie on September 21.

In his Village Hall presentation John will explore the development of the William Fife yacht building yard once located in Bay Street and discusses how the yard contributed to the expansion from a few fishermen’s houses to that which exists today.
The well-illustrated talk promoted by the North Ayrshire Family History Society will start at 7.30pm, with doors open from 7pm. 
An optional entry donation of £2 will be passed to local charities
A total of £180 was given to Largs Foodbank after the June talk.
