Venchies

Whenever photos of the old Venchies are shown, they always elicit memories from those who played on them.  Located across the community in the 1980s, they provided space and opportunity for children to play.  You can read more about the Venchies here.

  1. i remember the 1st venchie at murryburn place being open before the 1980’s.

  2. Love these photos and the care you are taking keeping the memories of these Venchies alive after their demise. Would be interested in speaking with someone so I could do a write up in my blog PlayGroundology – any suggestions? I’ve posted some of the photos featured on your site on the PlayGroundology FB Page – http://on.fb.me/1xJtgyI. Cheers, Alex in Nova Scotia
