From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Pages From The Past

The Sentinel Newspaper reported on local issues and was owned and managed by the people of Wester Hailes. 

This week we’ve gone back to August 1980, 30 years ago.  The Sentinel’s lead story was a report on the Huts with the announcement that classroom units would be used to construct neighbourhood bases.  The front page featured an artist’s impression of how these might look.
