Newport History Group
The Newport History Group was set up in 2016 following the fifth very successful local history exhibition in the Blyth Hall. The group has amassed a digital archive which you can see here, and a physical archive which is housed in the Blyth Hall. If you would like to see an item from the physical archive, please contact us.
Newport History Group normally hosts a programme of afternoon or evening lectures throughout the year. Recent topics have included The NE Fife Postal Service; Fife Milestones; Ferries Across the Tay; Postcards of NE Fife; Local Artists. We also organise guided walks, visits and pop-up exhibitions. Membership is free – if you would like to know more, please get in touch.
Unfortunately all our activities have been curtailed by Coronavirus, but we hope to resume our programme as soon as possible. Check here for details!
The History Group and website are managed by a small voluntary elected committee. The current members are Mairi Shiels, Chair; Sandra Charles, Secretary and Webmaster; Joan Mitchell, Treasurer; Tessa Durham and Andy Gillies. Currently, in 2020, we have almost 300 members.
