At a special presentation this evening, the Cromarty Crafters handed over a specially-commissioned banner to the Cromarty Peace Group — who then marched it to its permanent place of residence in St Regulus' Church, Church Street. Estelle Ellwood (organiser of the local craft group) made the presentation to Patsy Thomson on behalf of the peace group. It was her request that led nine members of the group to contribute their sewing, embroidery and knitting skills to produce a banner that will be used in peace marches, demonstrations and vigils. The banner depicts Cromarty's lighthouse, North and South Sutors, sailboats and dolphins.
The banner will make its first general appearance on 21 September (UN International Day of Peace) when the Peace Group will hold an afternoon and evening of music, readings, poetry and film to mark the centenary of the start of World War One.
