Another highlight during the exhibition will be historical walks, both around the east of town and the west. They will be led by Derek Reid in the East and Ray Stevenson in the West. Participants will feast on stories explaining the development of our town and anecdotes that will tickle the imagination. The eastern walks will go from the Court House departing 10.30 am and the western from the railway station departing at 1.30 pm.
Booklets of the exhibition will be on sale.
