The Sharing Heritage grant allowed us to employ an artist, Julia Barton, to make the banner.
Julia approached a number of groups in Midlothian to work with. Those who went on to take part in the design of the banner were:
- Bill Russell Woodburn Youth Project – who enjoyed visiting the Dalkeith History Society;
- Midlothian Sure Start Penicuik – visiting the National Mining Museum , plus printing and sewing sessions;
- Midlothian Scots Corner Barracks – printing session;
- Midlothian After School Network – Loanhead summer project making collaged banners of their own;
- Woodburn Day Care Club volunteers – discussions, printing, making a collaged banner of their own, visit to NMM;
- Woodburn Day Care Club members – reminiscing session.
