Callander & West Perthshire

Antiques Appreciation

We meet monthly on the 4th Thursday of the month between 10.00 and 12.00 in the Fire Station unless otherwise advised. A volunteer Topic Leader will lead each meeting on a topic of their choice.

The meetings will evolve over time but members of the group will be invited to bring along items relevant to the monthly topic. In addition and subject to timing, we will have a ‘Look what I've got here’ spot when members will be invited to bring along an unusual or interesting item.

Planned meetings for 2019 - 2020
