Project volunteers assist with community projects and public workshops as part of our work collecting and generating stories about our shared heritage across the Falkirk district. Projects range from hands-on crafts, outdoor activities to research and interpretation, offering a wide variety of opportunities for our project volunteers to use and develop their own special skills.
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.
