Preserving the rich heritage of Alford and Donside for future generations

Exercise Book Donation

We recently received an exciting new donation all the way from Montana, USA. This donation came in the form of an old Exercise book donated by Janet Austin, the granddaughter of Alexander Lawson who attended the now closed Gallowhill Public School in Alford. These books date back to the 1890s and belonged to Mr Lawson who went on to become a Gordon Highlander and fight in the Boer War. These books will be displayed in our school room and we cannot wait for you all to come in and see them. We would like to thank Janet and her family for donating this wonderful piece of history.
