CAMPSIE Local History Group has been busy putting the finishing touches to its 2012 calendar.

The local souvenir contains many old views of Lennoxtown and is described as “a very welcome present to send abroad” following on from the successful 2011 calendar.

Copies costing £4.50 are now ready and available from group members.

Campsie Local History Group was set up in 2009 and quickly realised there is wealth of history in the area.

However, members recognised that there was a need to have this recorded and decided to produce a number of booklets.

The group has been working hard – with some published and others nearing completion.

Titles ready to buy now include ‘Schools and Education’ and ‘Timeline of Transport and People’. Coming soon are books on; traditional games and pastimes, clubs and culture, and buildings.
