17 Jul FVSE are looking for the next Neil Oliver
FVSE, based in Stirling are looking for the next Neil Oliver. They are offering young people the opportunity to explore their story telling side by becoming a guide for a day at Stirling Highland Games on Saturday August 19th.
With the area’s leading highland games attracting visitors from all over the world the organisation was keen to support the year of history, heritage and archaeology by creating an additional training programme for young people aged 16+.
The games site within Stirling Sports Village is surrounded by visual history including Cambuskenneth Abbey, Stirling Castle and The Wallace Monument but part of the learning process for young people that sign up for this programme, will also help them create a ‘Walk n Talk’ session explaining to visitors that the road they are walking on was also the route walked by Robert The Bruce, William Wallace, Mary Queen of Scots and James VIth.
This training opportunity for young people is FREE to sign up too and takes place on Wednesday 26th July at Forthbank Stadium from 1pm. Local archaeologist, Murray Cook will be leading this session giving tips on some fascinating facts about Stirling which will also include a walk around the highland games site giving young people the opportunity to practice before the big day on August 19th.
Its wont be a daunting experience as they will be working in small groups so they can enjoy the day whislt making a major impact to help in promoting Stirling and Scotland.
FVSE would like to thank Enterprise Rent A Car and IFDS Group for their support of this project, allowing more young people to develop core skills through this opportunity. To book a place or for more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the office on 07432289445.
