PEOPLE in Bannockburn and the Eastern Villages are being encouraged to get involved with a tapestry project and showcase the area's heritage.

Bannockburn House has teamed up with charity Froglife to create the tapestry map, depicting the area's heritage including landscapes, habitats, wildlife and buildings.

Ross Caldwell, events manager at Bannockburn House, said: “We’ll be delivering free craft packs to homes across Bannockburn and the Eastern Villages.

“You don’t need any prior experience to take part; the Froglife team will be running a Zoom session to show us how to get started.

“The theme is the local heritage of the area.

“This can be anything from buildings and plants, to wildlife and tartan.

“Whatever represents local heritage to you.”

Packs to be delivered will contain everything needed to create a small piece of textile art, to be added to the main tapestry.

James Stead, Froglife project manager, said: “We can’t wait to see what people come up with.

“The tapestry will form one of 12 tapestry maps depicting the local heritage of Forth Valley and we’re looking forward to seeing what that means to you.

“It could be local landscapes, habitats, buildings, wildlife and other elements special to your local area.

“All levels and skills of artistic and craft creation are welcome.”

Those interested can register by emailing signup@bannockburnhouse with their name and address by this Friday, February 5.
