Them n Us!

I recently attended the Intergenerational Debate organised by the Pilton Community Mediation (intergenerational Project), which was greatly attended by over 30 young people, and 30 older people.

The event was one of many to be organised, bringing togther young and older to discuss the many perceptions and beleifs held between young and old.

Well know and respected local beat officer Ian 'Stan' Matthews, gave some background information on how the Muirhouse area has greatly changed over the years, and massive regeneration has completely revamped muirhouse from in the 1980's.

The day was kicked off with Radio Forth's Grant Stott (with a few plugs for Forth ONe 97.3 and his many Panto apearances!) who confirmed this great opportunities to get young and old together to discuss and debate, and work together for a better community.

The event kicked off with some 'speed dating' and then broke into discussion groups, after a fine lunch served by Billy and Marjory, of Muirhouse Millenium centre fame!

The event was very well organised, well done to Tracey, Project co-ordinator, and SACRO for supporting the event!.. whats next....???
