Get looking through those old photos.

Do you have a photograph of yourself, your parents or grandparents dancing on the open-air stage at Zetland Park during World War 2?

We’re working on the designs for the new Interpretive Sundial for the Park. The timeline includes the dances in the Park during World War 2. If you have photos you’d be willing to share, we’d love to see them as we need images to help our designer illustrate that part of the Sundial.

Grangemouth Childrens Day official fundraising events

Normally the biggest day of the year in Grangemouth.
I've added a link if anyone wishes to donate.
https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/grangemouthchildrensday?utm_term=PBmJ2DQzz

Today should have been the best day of the year but as you know Covid-19 has put a stop to it. There is no big day this year but be rest assured we are thinking about all the kids and families involved. Although we are bitterly disappointed we are already looking forward to next years celebrations. The Committee thanks everyone for their support, understanding and positive response to the decision we made. Here are a few messages from the 2020 retinue, Queen Erin and our President Steven 🌈

A company that has always supported the town.

A company that has always supported the town.

Instead of getting our vehicles ready for our local Galaday this year, we are fondly looking back at years gone by.
We hope everyone is keeping safe and can’t wait to be a part of the procession again next year! 🌈🚛

Any photos of Middle Street? Asking for a friend 😁
My Grandpa, William James Mackay, of Mackay The Barber's fame, in the Old Town. He also managed Forth Rangers, at one point, and had a pet parrot called Polly Watt, who used to mimic the referee's whistle and stop the match!!
I posted this on Old Grangemouth in colour to see if anyone recognised the people. So far no-one has. I don't think it belongs in my family. If anyone knows anything, maybe it's a grandparent or great-aunt please let me know. Thanks.
My mother worked in the Offices at Woodhouse, part of the GUS Universal Stores Group for many years in the 1950's/60's😊Happy Days

Hello. This will likely seem a strange question but I was brought up on Oxgang Road and I remember once being shown around a big warehouse type building at the back of the “pole park” that was filled with vintage vehicles... buses, tractors, cars, etc. I was talking about it with my mum and she doesn’t know anything about it and I just wanted to find out more about this place, what was it for etc. Can anyone help?

An old Postcard image I found online, is this incorrectly labelled as Boness Road or is the house on the right maybe now gone, and looks like a Church at the end of the road - surely a mis-print on the location, or is it......
Hello, does anyone know the location of the now gone nash hotel?
