As part of the research process, we have been interviewing local community activists from across Midlothian. These will continue until the end of the project in and the recordings, films and transcripts will be placed in the new Dalkeith Museum for use by schools, community groups and members of the public.
Robert Hogg was a miner in Midlothian. He is now actively involved in a number of organisations including the Mayfield and Easthouses Gala Day; the Mayfield and Easthouses Community Council; the Midlothian Federation of Community Councils; McSence; and Y2K.
