Dress for the weather
The weather forecast for tomorrow at noon, the time for the John Rae Birthday graveside dedication marking his 209th birthday, looks pretty brutal. Please come dressed for wind and rain. At the time of writing we are planning to go ahead in true Orkney fashion and invite you to join us at the gates of the St Magnus Cathedral graveyard for just before noon. A piper will lead us to Dr John Rae’s grave and Bryce Wilson will say a few words.
