Exhibition of the rural heritage and history of Bridge of Earn

On Friday 16th June Brig in Bloom invites you to an exhibition of photos and stories of the rural heritage and history of Bridge of Earn.  The volunteers of Brig in Bloom will present their project, ‘Bridging the Past: Brickhall and Balmanno Community Garden’  to create a heritage-themed community garden. Residents are invited to share their stories about the village’s rural heritage between the 1940’s and 1960’s, in celebration of Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017.

The exhibition on Friday 16th features old archive images of Bridge of Earn, with a 1950’s style tea party served by Dunbarney and Forgandenny Women’s Group. The venue is Dunbarney Church Hall, Manse Road, Bridge of Earn, from 10am to 4pm

Plans for the community garden include dry stone walls, paths and seating. Traditional native species of plants and trees will be planted to encourage wildlife and to offer a relaxing place to sit and reflect.

Supporters of the funding for the project include: Dunbarney Primary School, Kilgraston School, SWI Bridge of Earn, Dunbarney and Forgandenny Church Women’s Group, Foundation Scotland, heritage lottery fund, innogy
