Not Miss Whitlawburn

By Janice K Ross

Following on from Voices Galore (2016), Janice K Ross presents her second community
narrative based on a selection of orally recorded transcribed life stories from the first families of
Whitlawburn, the last council scheme to be built in Cambuslang, South Lanarkshire.

Erected in the early 1970s, before Thatcherism tore through the heart of industrialised Scotland, different
generations reminisce about their shared experiences of living in a new community. Memories of the Play Scheme, the Coosie, Morven Road puppet shows, the Maxton Bombers and the hotly contested Miss Whitlawburn construct how a community defines its cultural identity. This oral history celebrates volunteer stalwarts like Davy Tannahill and Betty Lindsay who gave their time to help improve the lives of others.

Janice K Ross grew up in Aron Terrace, and after several years living in Glen Coe and on the island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, she is back
home and lives in Halfway, Cambuslang.

Jim Nisbet grew up in Maxton Terrace and lives in Donegal, Ireland.
