We are delighted to have a fortnightly column in the Banffshire Journal.
This page includes scans of the various articles with the latest at the top. If you click on an article a bigger version will appear
We are on the look out for guest authors and can provide a more or less intense editorial service. It would be ideal if a couple of good quality photos could be included.

Johnny Stewart’s exhibition will very shortly be on show in the shop on South High Street so fondly remembered by many as Laura’s fashion shop. Hope you’ll come and admire the wonderful paintings and drawings on display (and for sale!).
