The Heritage Centre in Fraserburgh hosted an ‘events day’ recently to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The event drew a large number of visitors who had the chance to take part in a number of family-friendly activities.

Among the main attractions was ‘The Great War Boys’, a company which visits schools and local Scottish events with a host of World War memorabilia.

Lewis Gibbon, proprietor of ‘The Great War Boys’, commented: “This is my first time visiting the Heritage Centre and it’s great to see all the exhibits on display. I hope the event is a great success.”

Also taking part in the events day were a number of local radio amateurs.

And, in the afternoon, the Heritage Centre held a sing-along, another highlight of the open day.

Commenting, a spokesperson for the Heritage Centre said: “We’re very excited about this day.

“It’s a tribute to the memory of all those involved in WWI and in particular the 400 locals who never returned from the conflict.”
