On Saturday 30th September the CCLP team attended the Life In The Lost Villages celebration event at Dalmellington Community Centre. The afternoon was organised by Yvonne McFadden and Arthur McIvor from the Scottish Oral History Centre at the University of Strathclyde. We were joined by members of the community and their families who had contributed their personal testimonies to the project. The afternoon was capped off with live performances from Seán Gray and Rab Wilson with songs and poetry inspired by life on the old miners rows. We are now working with East Ayrshire Leisure Trust to hold an exhibition at The Baird Institute in Cumnock next year and launch a book all about the project and its findings.
