As part of our 1919-2019 Heritage Lottery Funded Sharing Heritage Grant we had a stall on the carnival ground on Sunday 30th June. During the 1919 Peace Parade Thanksgiving Service in the park every school child was given a Peace Medal, and so whilst we couldn’t give 5, 500 which was the number given in 1919 we did have a Peace Project 1919 -2019 commemoration medal created which we gave to children visiting us at the stall in the park. We also gave out a revamped Walk Around Stubbylee leaflet that was first produced in the late 1980’s by the late Nat member and Fearns High School teacher Mr John B Taylor.
