Drop-ins

Drop-in sessions are held on Tuesdays, 1-4pm, until 30 July. Please contact history@grantonhub.org for details.

Read Development Worker Tamsin Grainger's story on the session held on 16 April 2024: 

 

"We  were very pleased with our new drop-in sessions poster (all-weather) printed and delivered by @outofhandscotland. Today's drop-in session was busy with one of our invaluable volunteers Alan telling me why he started with us - "I had hoped for years that there would be an accessible place for local history, somewhere that's not a museum, but which relates directly to the area in which I have lived for 52 years. I was looking for somewhere people can bring things from their own family and history to add to the archive, or if they're making a project, they can look into not just Mary Queen of Scots, but the Triangle Centre or the Razzle Dazzle Arts Group that both used to be active here. I think it's coming together... "

We welcomed Svetlana and Marta, both artists who're making work in the area and had a good rummage through our fascinating photos and newspapers. Anna P, who translated the Walking Tour (I was able to give both Polish speakers a copy in their own language), came along to say hello in person and meet us all, and local community worker Barrie had a query about a local sculpture (anyone know who made the reclining sailor tucked away behind Lower Granton Road?) which he was curious about. 

Oh, and we did a spot of gardening too, to smarten the place up for our visitors.

Do pop in on a Tuesday between 1 and 4pm! You'll be assured a cup of tea and a biscuit!"
