Fraserburgh Heritage Centre welcomed hundreds of visitors through its doors last weekend, ahead of installing a new on-loan display.

Last Saturday, Fraserburgh Heritage Centre saw over 300 people visit the Quarry Road attraction, the Moray Firth Gansey Project.

The display, which started this week, is on loan throughout July and August.

The open day, hailed as a success by the volunteers at the Heritage Centre, marked the return of the Aberdeenshire Archives to the Heritage Centre, and was welcomed with singing and dancing by pupils of St Andrews Primary School.

A spokesperson for Fraserburgh Heritage Centre thanked the pupils, their choir, dancers and soloists for their efforts on the day, adding that it was pleasing to see that the dances and songs performed pertained to their school studies.

Other songs performed included the Olympic song and Gary Barlow’s Jubilee-inspired track, ‘Sing’.

The Heritage Centre also welcomed three special guests on Monday morning from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Europe.

Michiaki Nakamura, Managing Director, Kazuo Okamoto, Director and General Manager Corporate Planning, and Haruka Trees PA to MD of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Europe visited the Heritage Centre and its Glover Garden.

Speaking on the visit, the spokesperson commented that Fraserburgh Heritage Centre was delighted that the group “took the time to visit the Fraserburgh Heritage Centre, and, in particular, the Glover Garden”.

The Fraserburgh Heritage Centre is open seven days a week, 12pm ‘til 4pm, except Sunday when it runs from 1pm ‘til 4pm.
