Over 100 visitors braved the poor weather to make our first opening day of the Heritage Hub a great success. Folk enjoyed seeing Sean the blacksmith working, some fabulous refreshments, soup was very popular in the dreich weather! Our great team of volunteers should again be thanked for their input, putting tents up on Friday, cutting grass, creating displays and donating food and produce for sale. Playing horseshoe quoits was very popular with young and older! We will be posting more opening dates very soon.
Only 4 more days to get the smiddy & Heritage Hub ready for Midlothian Doors Open Day. We are also part of the Scottish archaeology & heritage festival and a European Industrial Heritage Year venue so are looking forward to welcoming visitors.
The weather is promising to be fairly settled, volunteers are baking some tasty treats and Sean the blacksmith is busy making a range of items for sale.
We start at 10am with a 'ribbon cutting' as this is the very first day that the new Heritage Hub will be open to the public, and the blacksmith will be on hand all day, demonstrating his craft.
Hope to see lots of visitors! Even if you've been before, you'll find something new to see.
