What is community heritage? Who is working on community heritage projects? And where are these projects? These were just a few of the questions that arose at the Community Heritage Scotland: Going Forward conference.
The Ladies Minute Books contain records for the Annual Ladies swimming competitions over a period of 100 years from their inception in 1875
What can we discover in the archives about the origins of the Arlington Baths for Ladies, founded in 1872?
This conference drew together all sorts of organisations with different types of sporting heritage, including the Arlington Baths. The shared theme was finding ways to make the heritage accessible to the public and help the sport flourish.
The Arlington History Group is just at the start of our journey so it's been really exciting to make links with other people and organisations and share what we've done so far. This is our presentation to Scotland's Community Heritage Conference 2017.
