We hope you had the opportunity to visit a local Stirling building during Doors Open Day 2016. We were lucky enough to be based at The Engine Shed for the weekend and have to say a fantastic time was had by all! It was lovely to meet our members in person and to also spread the word about the TBHC to new audiences. We received a lot of enquiries from individuals from areas outwith Stirling; showing us that there is the demand for the scheme to expand from Stirling in the future.
Our inspector David Lindsay kindly allowed us to borrow his stone carved Easter Island Head for the” Guess the Weight” competition. We are delighted to announce that James Smilie from Stirling won this competition and will be receiving a Waterstones Giftcard in the post. The winner of our childrens competition was Jamie Swingler from Bridge of Allan who will be receving our lovely Wolf Toy “Craig” in the post along with a large jar of sweeties.
All in all it was a great weekend showing how protecting Stirling’s Historic buildings is achieved through various different skill sets and great organisations. We will definetly be back next year when the The Engine Shed is completed and open for business.
