Local members of the University of the Third Age (U3A) have donated a three-DVD set of their recent local history project conducted at Arbroath Library to librarian Henry Logan.

The study group was led Harry Bruce and researched the areas of textiles, engineering, shipbuilding and Arbroath High Street.

In addition a DVD of interviews with people who could recall Arbroath life in the 1930s and ‘40s was produced. These materials will be held in the local history section of Arbroath Library for public reference.
