Hearing the call of Hoy

Next Friday 9 August is Story Friday and we have two stories of incoming in coming! Jeff and Avril are going to tell the story of answering the call for families to come to Rackwick in the mid 1970s, and Catherine is going to leave her story about coming to run the Hoy Inn in the 90s. Come along for 11am if you would like to take part, or just to have a cup of tea and listen.

What is Story Friday? It’s a chance for people to come along and record audio of their story to deposit in the Hoy archives. This is a follow on from the Orkney Story Stack project run by Orkney Library & Archive.

Here are a few of the Orkney Story Stack Hoy stories to enjoy.
