Residents at Millview took a walk down memory lane this spring, thanks to a fantastic project by local schoolgirl Hannah Crawford.

Hannah got in touch to see if she could do something to lift spirits and support the Residents during the latest lockdown.

Activities Co-ordinator Lindsay Massot suggested that Residents loved to look back at their lives in the local area, so Hannah put together a series of project books for them.

Hannah and her team of five put together guides to Gleniffer Braes history, industry in Barrhead, and landmarks. They also covered local film and cinema, music and events between 1960-1990 and pictures of Barrhead in the past and today.

The Residents loved looking at all the pictures, which sparked off great conversations about their personal histories.

Lindsay said: “The Residents loved talking about the local areas they lived in, their memories of Barrhead and places that meant the most to them.

“Hannah and her team created an absolutely fantastic resource that inspired us all to share stories and memories.

“It was so kind of her to think of us and reach out. The Residents really appreciated all the hard work the team put in.”

Hannah is a pupil at St. Luke’s High School and is currently working towards the Mark Scott Leadership for Life Award. Part of the scheme involves youngsters lending support to members of their community.
