Throughout the day they will also be asking you to share local stories and memories to make a new short film all about Wester Hailes over the years.

We will be making a short film on the day and are looking for people to share their stories, quotes, experiences of living/working in Wester Hailes.  Perhaps you worked in the area many years ago?  What’s changed, what’s not? Or perhaps you helped organise a community event years ago and have some old photos of it lying around?  Maybe you took part in the Wester Hailes Fun Run when you were younger?  Help us share your stories about Wester Hailes – the good and the bad!

The event is supported by the Wester Hailes Community Trust. For more information contact 0131 442 2341 or shasta@scorescotland.org.uk.
