Hi History Club!
I’m looking for your help again! We are doing a project for Refugee Week in June and I wondered if you would like to be involved? We are doing some research on the families who worked at Prestongrange in the past to see if any have links to other countries. We know that some glassmakers, who were originally from Venice in Italy, came to work in Prestonpans. I wondered if you could do some research on them and, if you find anything, produce a display for Prestongrange? We’re hoping to have an exhibition all about Refugee Week from 14th-25th of June so you’ve got a little while to come up with something. Maybe you could even visit Prestongrange and open the exhibition for us?
I’ve spoken to Mrs Todd about maybe getting a worldwide expert on glassmaking in to visit you in April. Fingers crossed!
