All issues of Strathdearn Newsletter will soon be available on this website.
Since the first copy was printed in 2000, the newsletter has been distributed free to every household in Strathdearn. The vast majority of those issues went on to light fires or line cat litter trays and were lost for ever. However Jean Macrae of Tomatin saved nearly every issue and was good enough to lend her collection for scanning. Those issues (2000 - 2007) can be viewed here. The remaining issues (2008 - present) will be converted directly from the original digital documents and will soon be added to the archive.
The newsletter will now be available to many more people - ex-Strathdearn folk living in foreign parts, community historians, our grandchildren! This valuable community resource will be securely preserved in digital form for future generations. All the work that present and past contributors have put into the newsletter will continue to be useful and accessible years after the print copies have disappeared, theoretically for ever!
