Clish-Clash, the e-newsletter of the Scottish Local History Forum

Clish-Clash is the e-newsletter of the Scottish Local History Forum.

The newsletter gives recent and forthcoming news about activities in the local history community.

“Clish-clash” means “repeated gossip” in Scots, and the newsletter passes on information about local history activities.

The aim is to issue Clish-Clash bi-monthly, but this depends on the amount of information received from SLHF members and others.
