Message from the Chair

I hope everyone managed to have a great Summer this year and you were all out there enjoying Nature at its very best – whether at home or abroad.

Our committee have also been busy behind the scenes, and we have manged to compile quite an exciting winter programme for 2022/23 with some great speakers booked – old & new!

So, with fingers crossed we are hoping to have our first indoor meeting at the Wynd Centre after an absence of over two years – where does the time go!!

This of course will always be subject to COVID-19 guidance from the Scottish Government and we will keep our members updated if any changes do occur. I’m really looking forward to seeing you all back in September, our society truly needs your support for the future.

Thanks again

Tom Byars, Chairman


As you will remember, we did not collect any membership fees for 2020-2021 or 2021-2022, because all activity of the society ceased during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We will, however, start collecting fees again, starting at the beginning of September, with the new lecture programme. The committee have decided to increase the membership fee to £10 per year for all members. This is to cover the cost of increases in expenditure, including hall hire. See the Membership page for further information on joining and payment.

If you are an existing member you should have received our latest newsletter by email with details of the winter programme and membership. Please let us know if any of your contact details have changed.


Last, but not least, we would like to thank Nicola MacIntyre for all the sterling work she has done over the years to produce our newsletters and emailing updates to members.  Nicola has decided to step down from the role and this is her last newsletter.  We are sorry to see her leave this role but she is not leaving the society altogether and we will continue to benefit from her company and broad knowledge of natural history.
