Alex Rowley meets Rosyth Garden City members

The Rosyth Garden City Dockyard and Great War Exhibition being hosted at the church halls in Queensferry Road is open all week and finishes on Saturday.

The project received £5,100 from the heritage lottery fund and has involved all four local primary schools who have entered a number of pieces of work into the exhibition making the links between the town and the impact of the First and Second World Wars. There are also multimedia presentations showing local photos and films including silent movies and a sing along of WW1 songs.

The exhibition documents the construction of the naval dockyard which began in 1909 and the development of Rosyth which was built to house the hundreds of workers at the base.

Local MSP Alex Rowley visited the project this week and met with members of the Rosyth Garden City Association. He said; “This is a great exhibition that has so much information about the role Rosyth played in the wars and the development of the Dockyard which has had a major impact on the whole area over such a long period of time. The work on display from the local schools is also first class and I would urge people to take time to visit this exhibition between now and Saturday as it is really well worth the time”.
