In partnership with the Zetland Park Regeneration project, Great Place invites you to participate in an 6-8 week project (start date 6th July 2020) exploring and interpreting some of Grangemouth’s most treasured heritage gems. The project will focus around three historical topics: the Grangemouth Docks, the Charlotte Dundas steam boat and the War Memorial in Zetland Park.
Volunteer-generated content (written articles, image galleries, oral histories, etc.) will be incorporated into the Our Stories website as well as informing potential future Great Place projects.
Research will also be used by the Zetland Park Regeneration Project: the Charlotte Dundas content will potentially be used as part of the interpretation at the play park; and the War Memorial content will potentially be used in the oral history bench to be located at the war memorial.
The Great Place project is a district-wide 2-year programme of activities celebrating the places, people, traditions, and industry of the Falkirk area with thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Each week we’d like volunteers to carry out at least one hour (or more, if they wish) of independent research on their chosen research topic. We’ll then schedule weekly group meetings on Zoom (1.5 hours max.) to touch base, share progress, ideas, ask questions, and plan for the following week.
06/07/2020 2-3:30pm Week 1: Introduction to project, project goals, resources, Our Stories website.
Prompt: If you’d like to prepare anything ahead of our first meeting (this is optional) then please think of a memory or anecdote relating to Zetland Park or Grangemouth
13/07/2020 – 03/08/2020 2-3:30pm Weeks 2-5: Discuss research topics, progress, and methods (text/audio/visual/video)
