Welcome to the FUNKY Intergen Project
FUNKY? - that's FUN at Kirkhope and Yarrow
The most recent Intergenerational Project involved communities at Kirkhope and Yarrow.
It took place over the Autumn Term starting in late August 2017.
Two drama workers from Borders Youth Theatre (BYT) worked with the pupils at both primary schools.
This ended in a great performance at Yarrow Village
Thanks to everyone involved.
We are still happy to receive memories, photos and comments about life in
Ettrick and Yarrow valleys 50 or more years ago.
Just email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We worked with the young people in Kirkhope and Yarrow Primary Schools and had six meetings where the
young people met older residents and quizzed them about life 50 or so years ago.
The young people then selected the 'stories' they like best and created sketches to illustrate them.
We have had a great response from the older residents
We had a great final presentation in Yarrow Village Hall on Wednesday
25th October at 1.30pm with all the pupils involved.
We are particularly grateful to local resident Ruth Tempest who wrote a
lovely song for us.
This project was supported by a grant from the Langhope Rig Community Fund organised through Foundation Scotland.
We are very grateful for their support.
