Heritage Festival and Fun Day 2017
Thank you everyone who came along to the Heritage Festival. It was great to see so many people interested in the history of this area, and we were blessed with fantastic weather for the Fun Day!
We love hearing what you thought of our events, so if you can spare 5 minutes, we'd really appreciate you completing our quick online survey. Simply click the button below to go to the survey page. Thanks!
Thank you to everyone who complete a Housing Needs survey, either online or on paper.
Rural Housing Scotland is now using these survey responses to analyse the need and demand for housing, which will give us a better idea of the housing issues in the area.
Meet The Trust
Jim Hewlett - Trustee
Where are you from?
I was born on a Hampshire farm.
How did you come to live in the area?
A post in Specialist Radiography was offered In Edinburgh. Hospitals are usually in cities, but I prefer to live in the country and this bit of country had Fiona (my now wife) in it. I’m not attracted to city crowds, noise and pollution. Also a farmer’s son needs room to tinker with bits of machinery.
When did you get involved in WAT IF?
I’ve always joined voluntary organisations which want to improve the environment. The Scottish Wildlife Trust is one. WAT IF? is a good example of local people wanting to do something to do something useful, to put something back.
What do you enjoy most about being involved in the Trust?
I like making things, improving things and fixing things. The Trust can have effects that will last. I enjoy helping the Trust be more effective at benefiting more people.
What is the biggest challenge in being a Trustee?
Time, relatively few people are able to invest time, being retired should mean I can invest more, but there’s never enough.
Give us one interesting fact about yourself (hidden talent, party piece, 15 mins of fame etc.)
No particular skills, but as is traditional with farmer’s sons I’m a persistent generalist and can do anything well enough to get it started. As to hidden talents, if I had any I wouldn’t hide them; I can wiggle my ears a bit. I am dyslexic but I wouldn’t change that.
