From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Pages From The Past

Sentinel September 1893

This week we’re featuring pages from the Sentinel newspaper from September 1983. Twenty eight years ago, the headline highlighted the scandal of small locally based organisations losing out in the funding stakes.  The official response was an internal argument over which department was responsible for funding different organisations.  This may sound a familiar story to some!  Also featured in this edition:

  • Length of the post office queues
  • New health centre vandalised
  • News from the local community groups
  • Report on Ernie Palmer, veteran sprinter
