Down Memory Lane
THIS Gilnockie school reunion picture in 2002 was brought in by Hazel Bell, who is on the front row, third from the right. It was taken outside the the former school.
Jean Hogg organised the reunion. They gathered in Gilnockie hall for a catch-up and refreshments before having their picture taken outside. Jean and her husband, John, have given names for most of the people and maiden names are used for most of the women. John said it had been 15 years and Jean thought she might organise another reunion.
