Clare Balding and Lucy Lunt came to ramble with the Saltersgate Ramblers for her BBC Radio 4 Programme “Ramblings” along East Lothian’s gorgeous beaches with views over the Firth of Forth and beyond to the Kingdon Of Fife. We all had great fun. Many thanks to Derek Christie for the film.

Saltersgate Circus Animation

As part of the Corn exchange community engagement project, pupils from Saltersgate school have been developing an exciting piece of work in response to the story of the escaped monkeys from the Zoo circus in 1933 in Ironmills Park.

Using newspaper articles as a starting point, the pupils have been creating drawings and images to illustrate the story and have created a short piece of animation.
