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.
