September 2017 Workshops, Day 1
"The Ladysbridge Stories coach headed out into the beautiful Banffshire countryside today to visit the site of the former Ladysbridge Hospital.
As we made our way round the newly built housing development, currently under construction we were lucky enough to bump into Alasdair Ramsay of the Ladysbridge Village Development. He was able to give us an insight into the recent history and progress of the new estate, now in its final stages. We were really pleased to see that he had taken care to maintain the names of all the villas and wards which once made up the Ladysbridge community retaining that important link with the sites history.
As Chairman of the local Boyndie Trust he was full of stories and knowledge of former residents and their progress in the community and had plenty to chat to us about.
He was also kind enough to book us all a table at a local harbour side restraint in Whitehills for bowls of Cullen Skink!" Sharon Quigley, artist
