Send us your memories for an anniversary scrap book covering the whole period.
Next year will mark 50 years since Scouts, and Guides, first made use of Longcraig Pier, nestled alongside the famous Forth Bridge at South Queensferry, for a few tentative sailing and canoeing activities.
This was ground-breaking stuff, as adventurous activities in Scouting were in their infancy, and many of these activities were otherwise out of reach of many Scout Groups.
In anticipation of things to come next year, we are starting to put together recollections, stories, experiences and perhaps some of the things you might not have told anyone about at the time.
If you have a tale to tell, or a memory to share with others, or simply want to let everyone know how some time at Longcraig shaped or changed your life, please tell us. Or was it simply that you just enjoyed the experience of a dip in the Forth on a freezing April evening?
We are aiming to gather all the inputs to generate an anniversary scrap book, so please dig out your old memories and send them to us. It doesn’t have to be from 50 years ago – we need material from 50 years, 40 years, 30 years, 20 years – even last year! If you have a story, please share it with us!
Ian Harrower, Longcraig ASU
