This week we’re taking a look back to June 1987, to see what was happening in Wester Hailes 25 years ago as reported by the Sentinel.  The front page story focused on the high turnout in Wester Hailes for the General Election, with 67% of the local population casting their vote.  Other stories include

  •  The results of the Wester Hailes Gala Queen competition
  •  A report on Andrea Douglas and her dancing award achievements
  •  The Calders Fun Day which took place despite the rain
  •  News from around the community areas including Dumbryden, Westburn and Clovenstone
