TER along the canal 1

Members of the local community are invited to share their canal-related stories, photographs, maps and objects with young canal college volunteers aboard the Lochrin Bell boat, moored on the Union Canal at Edinburgh Quay this Thursday 23rd April from 11am till 3pm.

This day of oral reminiscence, organised by Scottish Waterways Trust with support from Re-Union Canal Boats, will be led by the Edinburgh branch of Scottish Waterways Trust’s youth employability programme canal college.

The latest group of 16-25 year old recruits who are not in employment, further education or training will record stories and collect photographs and memorabilia aboard the barge, then use the materials to create unique heritage boxes.

These boxes will then be used in community groups and schools to inspire future generations to make memories of their own on the Union Canal.
