Getting Started

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.
