The Devil’s Porridge Museum at Eastriggs, Near Annan, Dumfries and Galloway has retained its 5 star quality assurance rating from Visit Scotland for the fourth year in a row.
“It’s all down to the dedication of our volunteers and the professionalism of our staff that we continue to maintain high standards, ” says Richard Brodie who has been Chairman at the Museum since its inception.
Although the Museum has had to delay re-opening, we are doing what it can to keep activities happening in difficult times for everyone. “We’ve just launched a new series of free online talks” said Judith Hewitt, Museum Manager. “Each talk will be on a different topic. The first will be on Dorothée Pullinger, a pioneering female engineer, she built the Tongland Factory near Kirkcudbright in the 1920s and it was here that the Galloway Car was built, a car ‘made by ladies for ladies’. It starts at 7pm on January 25th and tickets can be obtained through Eventbrite or the Museum’s Facebook page. Following that we have a talk on February 15th on Love in Wartime and one on March 22nd on female engineers in Dumfries and Galloway. We hope these free talks will be of interest and serve our community well in these dark, cold (and possibly, lonely) winter evenings.”
If you don’t use Facebook or Eventbrite, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01461 700021 to book a place at one of these talks.
