Labels: kirk session , marriage , pawn , proclamation , We love words. Saturday, 6 July Orkney Pride. It's London Pride today and so we thought we'd see if we had any rainbow-themed archives to celebrate Friday, 5 July Serena!

You also have to contact the Registrar to obtain the Marriage Notice Forms M10 which have to be completed and submitted with the appropriate documentation and fee. Whether you choose to have your ceremony in the Registration Office or at a venue of your choice, we will be happy to assist you in every way to ensure you have a day to remember. When you have decided on a date, place and time, contact the Registrar to check their availability.
Orkney, Scotland Genealogy
At its meeting held on 21 June , when considering a governance review, Orkney Islands Council Policy and Resources Committee recommended, inter alia, that a Harbour Authority Sub-committee, encompassing the statutory functions of the harbour authority and the safe and effective operation of the harbour area, comprising seven Members of the Development and Infrastructure Committee, be established. The Harbour Authority Sub-committee exercises the function of Duty Holder, with responsibility for the safety of all harbour activities. I actually enjoy the pressure and discipline of studying new subjects but I could do with more spare time! I have two daughters, Valerie and Yvonne, who both work in Orkney - and four grandbairns. Being a member of around a dozen committees and sub-committees of the Council along with various working groups, single topic meetings and attending to ward issues, I find I am in the Council Offices nearly every day.
I finally visited Orkney, after years of wanting to go! The Orkney Islands number 70, and have a history of inhabitation that stretches back around 10, years, meaning there are plenty of things to do in Orkney now too! Islands are commonly on our travel bucket list because we want a tropical vacation. Subscribe to my YouTube channel for more videos on Scotland and beyond!
