On Saturday we held our launch event for the project. The event was designed to inform the local community about the aims of the project while giving them a taste of Falkirk’s past. Attended by just over 500 people, it was a great opportunity to engage with members of the public who had heard about the project and explain the opportunities available to business owners, organisations and individuals.
Our traditional craft demonstrators, Stone Mason Gardner Molloy and Sign Writer Frank Carty, gained a lot of interest from the public. About 70 children had a go at creating a sign of their initial in gold or silver leaf and some of the parents had just as much fun as the children doing this.
The exhibition of old Falkirk Herald images and old films of Falkirk were very popular. A number of visitors recognised family members in a number of the photos and even swimming in the film clip of Falkirk Burgh Public Baths.
Thank you to everyone who helped make the day a success. We had a great day and we hope everyone who came did as well.
