We continue to be a large group of 30 members although a few have moved on and a few new faces have been welcomed. This year many of the members contributed to a fascinating in-house session on famous people associated with Penicuik - a surprising and varied line-up of interesting characters. We also organised visits to the Scottish Genealogy Society, the Paper Making Museum in Penicuik, the Trades Maidens Hospital, Newhailes House and Riddles Court. Then in May we went on a New Town walk with a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide.
Group meetings continue to be well attended and usually take place on the second Monday of the month at 2pm.
