Merry Christmas Everybody

25594172_1641128845947118_1241159619431034574_nI’d like to say ‘Merry Christmas’ and thank you to all 13,550 people subscribed to this popular page who follow Blantyre Project posts so avidly here each day.
As always, I’ve learned plenty reading your comments, especially this last year and appreciate all your input. I can confidently say, I enjoy posting in Blantyre Project very much and remain extremely motivated, especially with further large books planned for release in 2019.
Collecting Blantyre notes for over 33 years (since I was 14 years old), writing it up and putting it online these last 8 years continues to be a huge part of my life ! I’m extremely proud of that commitment and effort and hope you’re enjoying it too. The fact it has raised money for the community for over a hundred local good causes, is just the “icing on the cake!”
You may be surprised to know lots of your valuable comments are integrated into the archives to ensure it’s represented by as many people as possible with facts extracted for the ongoing definitive volume of A-Z encyclopaedias being created about Blantyre. Who would have thought this little town could attract SO much attention not just in Lanarkshire, but from further afield and from ex-pats all over the world!?
From Blantyre Project, (that’s me…Paul Veverka), no matter where you are in the world, I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas. Peace, warmth and happiness to you all over the festive season.

  1. Hi Janet. Merry Christmas to you too. I don’t recall seeing an email from you recently about Croftfoot. Do you know when you sent it?

    1. Hello Paul,

      I sent it on the 18/11/2018 to The Blantyre Project – Blantyre South Lanarkshire, so may well have sent it to the wrong web site, hope you can find it if not I will forward it to you again if you would like me to.

    2. I sent it on the 18th November, hope you found it if not I can send another copy.

  2. Great stuff Paul! Looking forward to your definitive book on Blantyre mills- did you say that was being published soon?
    Happy Winter and power to your keyboard!

    1. Merry Christmas to you too James. Blantyre mills book draft is still open, but i think more likely in 2020. I am researching a lot about the time it went into decline and wish to include all that detail.

  3. Thank you Paul for you good wishes and offer the same to you and a very Healthy and Happy New Year. I know you are a very busy man but would like to know if you received my e.mail with the photo of your previous occupants at Croftfoot. Still enjoyed your posts very much indeed, look forward to some more in 2019.
