We're up to 15 fantastic volunteers with our Community History project, though there's still plenty of room for more folk to get involved. This New Year saw us swiftly resume our interviews with local folk, including relatives of the legendary Granny Stenhouse, former Bridgend Cottages resident Frances McCormack (Campbell) and the Golden Years Group at Inch House. We've gained some training in audio editing skills, learnt more about the dairy farming days, and are planning a trip to a working farm to get more of a sense of that! Plans for our exhibition, on-the-spot interviews and Farm Memories session at the Opening Party are well underway.
We've started delivering workshops at Niddrie Mill Primary School, with the wonderful P5 pupils of Jen Goodall, who are getting to grips with maps and will soon be interviewing locally and contributing art to the farmhouse exhibition.
We meet on Tuesdays 3.30-5 most weeks at the Farmhouse. Know a potential interviewee for us? Want to help out or contribute local information?
