Nominated for Category E: Lifetime Contribution to the Historic Environment by Arrochar, Tarbet and Ardlui Community Council.
Mary has committed a huge amount of her time, energy, drive and enthusiasm over many years to develop the Arrochar, Tarbet and Ardlui Heritage Group.
Mary strives to ensure that memories from older generations are captured, recorded and preserved for the use of generations to come and negate the risk that this knowledge and memories would be lost. The AT&AHG has undertaken many projects researching, collating and preserving the history of many of the local developments such as Loch Sloy Dam and the Old Torpedo Range– to name but a few.
Mary has compiled booklets which she has sold to help raise funds for the AT&AHG. She has been successful in finding funding for many different projects and instrumental in the development of the website for the AT&AHG.
