Weaver’s Yard celebrate their 30th birthday!

Posted: September 6, 2017

Hillcrest HA residents and staff celebrated the 30th anniversary of Weavers Yard in Dundee on Friday.

Attendees had the opportunity to catch up over BBQ and birthday cake, get souvenir photographs taken with Oor Wullie, and discuss the history of Weavers Yard and the wider Upper Dens development.

We would like to thank everyone who helped to make the day a success, Arnolds Catering for the delicious BBQ, Clark’s 24 Hour Bakery for the fantastic birthday cake, and Alison Carrie and Ben Gibson for delivering a special historical insight into the former mill.

Historian and author of If These Wa’s Could Talk, Alison Carrie teamed up with Hillcrest Community Housing Officer, Ben Gibson, to give a short, fun and interesting history of the development during which they invited residents to talk about their experiences of living in the mill.
