A PROJECT set up to bring memories of Dalry to life has been launched in the town.

Organised by Bypass Art and the Dalry Scout Group, they have made a short film about what it was like growing up in Dalry.

A spokesperson for the group said: “We hope this short film will give the younger generation today and indeed future generations an insight into what it has been like to live and grow up in Dalry.

“We recorded memories of growing up in Dalry during the Second World War, The Old Dalry Nursery and of course normal everyday life in the town.

"We thought it was really important to involve young people and so we contacted Dalry Scout Group - who were delighted to be involved.

"By April we were set to film, we had our six scouts Ava, Amber, Andrew, Kyle, Hollie and Jonathan and 5 very brave volunteers, Robert, Emily, Ann, Ann Marie and Mary.

"It was filmed over four one and a half hour sessions and the scouts did all the interviewing, filming, sound and editing, with all of these skills learned going towards gaining their IT badges.

"The man who helped us put all of this together is Jim Gibb a Media and Learning Officer with NAC. The whole project was done at Maker Space in Dalry Library, with North Ayrshire Council providing us with Jim’s services and all the necessary equipment free of charge, so to anyone or any local groups reading this article pop into your library to make use of it.

"This film is part of a larger heritage project by Bypass Art and pretty soon there will be some new additions to the town centre.

"There will be heritage boards displaying details of Dalry’s history and industrial heritage and also commemorative paving installed within the path at the Biggart Fountain."
