Irvine Burns Club set to take over the Vennel

The Irvine Herald is reporting that the Irvine Burns Club is poised to takeover the Glasgow Vennel local archive and family history centre in Irvine, to use as a winter museum - the premises are where Burns learned the flax trade. Very handily for me, as it will be just down the road, the present centre and archive will be moving to Saltcoats next month. As such, the Vennel will be closing from this Saturday 18th September in preparation for the move.

The full story can be read at www.irvineherald.co.uk/ayrshire-news/local-news-ayrshire/local-news-irvine/2010/09/17/irvine-burns-club-set-to-takeover-vennel-museum-75485-27272292/.

Looking forward to seeing the new facilities!
