You can expect to learn a little bit about women’s history and its importance, before finding out the stories of some women of Dennistoun who we have already discovered, but we want to hear your own memories and histories. How has Dennistoun changed over the years? What is it like to move into Dennistoun now? If you like, you can bring along anything you would like to share such as photographs or other items you might have which may help us learn a little more about your own history or other women of the neighbourhood – but most of we want to see you and hear your stories and memories!
