Mary Slessor lecture @WEndChristmas @McManusDundee

There was a good turnout earlier tonight for the Mary Slessor lecture at Dundee West Church's Friendship Hall, held as part of West End Christmas Fortnight

Carly Cooper, Social History Curator at the McManus Art Gallery and Museum, gave a very interesting presentation and there was a lively question and answer session thereafter.     I am very grateful to Carly for participating in this event and also to Paola McClure of WestFest, who kindly chaired the meeting.

Rev Andrew Greaves also gave an update on the forthcoming Sheila Tennant Awards at Dundee West Church in the spirit of Mary Slessor - Andrew is pictured below addressing the event :
