The most recent Intergenerational Project involved the community in Coldingham.

It took place over the Winter Term starting in January 2018.


Two drama workers from Borders Youth Theatre (BYT) worked with the pupils at both primary schools.


This ended in a great performance at Coldingham Village Hall

Thanks to everyone involved.



We are still happy to receive memories, photos and comments about life in Borders Communities 50 or more years ago.

Just email to




We worked with the young people in Coldingham Primary School 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 Coldingham Village Hall with all the pupils involved.

We are particularly grateful to all the local residents who took part.



This project was supported by a grant from the Greencoat Drone Hill Community Fund organised through Foundation Scotland.  We are very grateful for their support.

One of our older people remembers the smell of coffee when she went to a local Kardomah Café in Derby.
