From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Pages From The Past

A couple of weeks ago we looked at transport, in particular the buses.  As a follow up, here’s the story behind the picture of the C55 that was withdrawn from the Calders after drivers complained about the speed bumps.  You can see the full story by clicking here on Sentinel March 1996

This week we’re also featuring Sentinel pages from March 2000. The front page is devoted to a report on problems with environmental improvement works.  Other stories include

  • More bus trouble as the C5 is withdrawn by First Bus
  • Report on the launch of “Radical Teens” a magazine produced by WHEC students
  • A football tournament between local young people and the police
  • Report on a new sponsorship deal for the Westburn based team Meadow Star
