EARLIER this month, Bypass Art held a Heritage Walkabout to celebrate the completion of three projects this year in Dalry.

The event started off at Rosearden when the group thanked the sponsors Dalry Parish Boundary Trust, Ryeside Garage, McTaggart Construction, Reid’s Dairies, Farrans Roadbridge

Lauren Shaw Photography and Dalry Burns Club.

Bypass Art, sponsors and representatives from local groups attending the event then took a stroll down to the Heritage Board situated at the corner next to the Be Green Shop.

The board titled ‘Our Town - Dalry’, tells the town’s story, its growth from a village into a town, factors such as land improvements in the 18th century and industry in the 19th century that promoted this growth.

The board lists possible reasons behind street names, notable people and a timeline which takes you through Dalry’s history from the stone age to the 21st century. The board was manufactured by Clyde Studios in Saltcoats and the group are really pleased with it.

They then had a wander down to view the Commemorative Paving - seven pavers installed within the existing path at the Biggart Fountain next to the Old Post Office. Each paver has an interesting fact or a piece of poetry about Dalry.

Our pavers were manufactured by local company Robertsons Memorials and again Bypass Art are really pleased with them, they look great and blend in well next to the Biggart Fountain

In between these two projects they found the time to host a film night, where three films were shown that had recorded memories about living and growing up in Dalry- again a great success and they plan to host another film night in January.
