Today, Thursday 6 October 2016, is National Poetry day. We thought we would celebrate by sharing a video of a poem created by a local resident about Wester Hailes!
The Wester Hailes Our Place in Time poem was filmed during the Wester Hailes 2015 Community Connections Festival and details how Wester Hailes has changed over the fifty years since its construction.
National Poetry Day is an initiative of the Forward Arts Foundation, a charity that celebrates excellence in poetry and widens its audience. They bring together leading poetry, literacy and literary organisations around a shared purpose: promoting the enjoyment, discovery and sharing of poetry.
