From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Pages From The Past

Complex 2000

The Sentinel pages this week are from October 1996.  Pictured is an artist’s impression of a proposed centre that was to be called Complex 2000 and would have been a multi purpose hub for a range of local organisations if funding had been awarded.  Located on the canal, it would also have provided a cafe, crèche and conference facilities.  Other stories include 

  • Former Wester Hailes resident becoming the lead singer for Genesis
  • George Robertson, Labour’s Scottish spokesman meeting with the Rep Council
  • Neighbour support after a local pensioner’s dog is stolen
  • A critical look at the new Job Seeker Allowance benefit which was introduced in October 1996
  • An examination of poor behaviour on the football pitch
