News from The Clan Armstrong Trust in Scotland
"Armstrongs at the Eskdale”.
As a result of recent developments, especially the permanent loss of The Armstrong Museum in Lodge Walk,Langholm,Scotland, "The Trust" has been cooperating with a fledgling organization called The Langholm and Eskdale Visitor Network. The result is that the owners of the Eskdale Hotel, in the town center, have generously donated spacewithin the hotel where we can have a permanent display of Armstrong artifacts and historic memorabilia which memorabilia and will be called “Armstrongs at the Eskdale”. To launch this project we will be working hard over the summer to bring it to fruition for a Grand Opening, and Armstrong Gathering, held over the weekend of the 12th, 13th and 14th of September 2014. The opening of the display/exhibition will be on Friday the 12th followed by a formal dinner in the Eskdale Hotel and the remainder of the weekend will be taken up with visits to the Reiver Trail, Carlisle Castle and the Tullie House Museum.
If you would like to attend the opening email email@example.com. AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
If you would like to stay at the Eskdale Hotel contact firstname.lastname@example.org AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
