Learning about history with the Heritage Fund

SSB Options in LIfe- Mining Museum 060117-1618We’re very proud to announce that we’ve received a grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund! The grant is to make history fun and accessible to our service users. We’re very excited to build on our previous experiences and to learn more about topics which have interested our groups and captured their imaginations. We’re also eager to take part in lots of new experiences, including a ranger-led cycling tour of Tentsmuir Forest and learning about salmon fishing on the Tay.

We’ve also visited the local historic village of Falkland and learned a bit about it’s history.

Repeat trips to local historic sites are a fantastic way for our groups to build on their knowledge and expand their interests, so we’re looking forward to visiting some old favourites and discovering new ones.
