Out this week is a fantastic new children’s book called, “Pits, Ponies, People and Stories.”
Its a project that has taken over 2 years to develop involving many hundreds of children and volunteers. It is beautifully illustrated and written in a way children will understand. Bound with a quality hardback cover, it tells the mining heritage of South Lanarkshire, including stories, poems and pictures about Blantyre.
I received my copy last week (thanks to a particular councillor for sending me it out by post !; ). You can get YOUR copy for FREE, simply by picking it up at the David Livingstone Centre.
