Volunteers sought for popular Kirrie attraction

The camera, and its cafe, opened earlier this month and will now be open every Saturday, Sunday and Monday throughout the summer.

One of only three in Scotland, it is housed in a purpose-designed turret room in the Barrie Pavilion on Kirrie Hill. It provides a fascinating glimpse of historic technology, with 360-degree views of the surrounding countryside.

It was was gifted to the town by one of its most famous sons, Sir J M Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, along with the cricket pavilion, which was opened by the author in 1930.

The facility is run by a dedicated group of volunteers who are keen to add to their ranks so that they can open up to the public on more than just the current three days.

All they are asking is for anyone who is willing to spare three hours of their time to get in touch. Shifts would be between 10.30am – 1.30pm and 1.30pm – 4.30pm.

Anyone keen on getting involved can find out more by emailing kirrierg@gmail.com, by telephoning 07825 408207 or by messaging the group’s Facebook page.
