Temperance to Heritage

The Temperance Hall at Kettletoft, Sanday, was built in 1894 to encourage not just temperance, or moderation, but abstinence from alcohol among residents, in general, and seafarers, in particular. Now, 120 years later - after a period of dereliction - the building has been revived as the Sanday Heritage Centre and opened its doors to the public last weekend. More is to be found in an item from The Orcadian.

Great to see these old buildings given a new lease of life!
