Heritage enthusiasts can take a stroll down memory lane and discover more about East Renfrewshire’s history.

East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure (ERCL) is staging a series of heritage walks.

A ‘house history’ session and a ‘family history for beginners’ workshop, led by experienced genealogist Lorna Kinnaird, are also on offer.

Amanda Robb, a local studies librarian with ERCL, said: “Our heritage walks and workshops are a great way to dig deeper into the past with the guidance of experienced tutors, who will help you on your journey.

“Our two-hour walks allow you to discover more about local areas by uncovering what we can still see, while our workshops are full-day events so you can make the most out of your research and learning time.”

The Story of Netherlee heritage walk takes place tomorrow, starting at Netherlee Pavilion, while the Story of Clarkston event will set off from Clarkston Halls on Thursday, November 3.

Both events take place from 10am until noon, with an expert tutor leading participants on a detective trail to tell the story of each area.

The family history workshop will be held at Giffnock Library on Monday, October 31, from 10am to 4pm.

It is aimed at those with an interest in researching their family tree and offers the chance to obtain all of the skills needed to get started.

Participants are encouraged to bring with them any research they have already carried out.

The house history for beginners course will be hosted at Giffnock Library on Monday, November 7, with those involved able to access various records as they dig deeper into how our ancestors lived.
