Seeking Johnstonians living Abroad
We have recently been delighted to receive enquiries from Johnstonians now living abroad and we are keen to make contact with others who may have a tale to tell or memories to share about their time in Johnstone. Articles and old photographs of the area that you would be willing to share on our web site would be gratefully received.

(No, he did not hurl verbal abuse at stage performers; he carded raw fibers as part of the yarn-making process.)
