Best Bib and Tucker…

A lot can happen in Falkirk in a summer…not one but two royal visits. I am delighted to report that a First World War project that I worked on with Falkirk Community Trust last year was on the schedule of His Royal Highness Prince Edward.
Thanks to the Learning Team at Callendar House we all had a lovely day and the former pupils of Laurieston Primary School did a great job at remembering the story of their ‘memory boxes’. It was good to catch up with the community volunteers too.
The Duke put everyone at ease and was interested in the children’s work and in the photographic album in the Falkirk Archives that inspired the project. The archive, the house and the park is well worth a visit if you are passing and the display ‘Our Area in the First World War’ is at Falkirk Library over the summer.
