A glimpse into the past – the Coire Church time capsule reveals its secrets

A time capsule which was discovered hidden within the walls of Corrie Church, has at last revealed its secrets.

It was discovered during the current redevelopment of the church into a private dwelling, and since its discovery has been investigated by archaeologists.  Their report, which provides a fascinating glimpse into our local history around the time of Queen Victoria’s jubilee, is now available and a copy can be found by clicking the image below.

Pages from Corrie Church Time Capsule Report

The new owners of the church, Sandy and Jane, are exploring options on how and where to display the capsule and contents for the enjoyment of the local community in the coming months.

Over 60′s Lunch Club

Anyone resident in Diabaig, Wester Alligin, Inveralligin, Torridon, Kinlochewe and Shieldaig is warmly invited to attend the Lunch Club at the Loch Torridon Community Centre.

The Lunch Club is held every second Wednesday from 12.30 -2.00 pm, when a lovely two course meal is served for £3.50.

For further information, please contact the Centre on 01445 791 361.

Scottish Country Dancing

The Scottish Country Dance group meets in the Loch Torridon Community Centre each Tuesday at 7.30 pm from October until Easter.

New members welcome – please contact Marie Macdonald on 01445 791264. Costs are £3 per night. Visitors are also welcome to join us, provided they have some knowledge of Scottish Country dancing.

At the end of each winter session we get together with the group from Gairloch for an evening of dancing, with a buffet provided by the hosts for that year.

Other dances will be danced throughout the session.

The Torridon Country Dancing group was started in 1973, and is affiliated to the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society. Our branch is Inverness. Country dancing is good for the body and mind. It has proven to be one of the best aerobic exercises, and the memorising of formations is also good for the brain.

This is a social class and we welcome all new dancers. Why don’t you come along and give it a try.
