My name is Rachel Cheer and I am delighted to have recently taken over from Wyn Dobbie as the chair of the Museum of Abernethy. I have been involved with the Museum since I moved to the village in 2006. The hope that my skills and experience as both a professional museum curator and as a professional fundraiser will help me to continue the excellent work done by Wyn and the team. I am ably assisted by Angus Macintyre (vice-chair), Irene McLaren (secretary), Lesley Robinson (treasurer), Sonja Mainprize (membership secretary), Bill Hughes and Caroline Haddow. I would like to thank both the Board and the plethora of volunteers who have been working tirelessly to get the Museum ready to open for the season on 12 May. The theme this year is Edwardian Abernethy from 1900 to 1914. I hope you will take a few minutes to pop in and say hello. We have a large array of displays about Abernethy as well as things to keep the children entertained. We are open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 5pm until 30 September. If you wish to become a member of the Museum, your support would be greatly appreciated. As well as the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a fantastic local resource, you will also be invited to a number of events throughout the year. For more information please call the Museum on 850 889 or email me at rachelcheer@hotmail.co.uk.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Museum in the near future.
