Various groups and organisations including local craft group, The Buckie Blethers, and Re-engage (formerly Contact the Elderly) will be on hand to showcase what they do and tell visitors about their causes.
Two local authors, David Fowler and Allan Fraser, will also be participating and will have their books of local interest available for sale.
Buckie Library staff will be highlighting the myriad of services available at libraries and online, and a special storytime will be held at 2pm to entertain the younger generation and their parents. A fun treasure hunt for the young (and the young at heart) will be available from 10am – 4pm.
As a fitting finale to the day, Professor Peter Reid from Robert Gordon University, a Portgordon local, will present the fascinating story of Little Norway in the evening at 7pm. Little Norway was the name given to the Norwegian and Danish refugee community established in Buckie during World War II. This is a timely event preceding the forthcoming visit to Buckie of a Norwegian delegation who will be making their way by sea, as the refugees did in wartime, to Buckie in April to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Tickets for this free event are available from Buckie Library or online https://secure.moray.gov.uk/eshop/home.php.
