Banchory Heritage Society members were treated to a wonderful start to the season by guest speaker Debby Leslie, who kept the members amused and entertained with stories, poems and snippets about her life, family and friends.

A skilled after-dinner speaker, an author of books in English and the Doric, Debbie is also the Reader in Residence for Aberdeenshire and explained her remit, to promote reading to all ages and abilities, to the audience.

When the evening finally broke up for refreshments, there was still a buzz going round and a lot of questions for Debbie to answer.

Many of the society members are fluent in the Doric themselves and left the meeting assured that it has a great champion in Debbie Leslie.
