The Fife and Tayside Traditional Building Forum worked in collaboration with Bell Baxter High School, Cupar to organise a traditional building skill demonstration in the school on 7 December 2017.
Building on the success of the events held throughout the year, the forum and Bell Baxter High School brought a similar event into a school for the first time.
School children, and teachers, were able to have a go at the traditional building skills being demonstrated by local tradespersons and Fife Council while there was also a presentation on the build environment of Cupar and work undertaken as part of the Cupar THI/CARS project.
The event was organised to raise the profile of the career available in traditional building sector.
The event was also visited by Stephen Gethins MP as well as several local councillors. The elected members kindly came down to talk with those giving the demonstrations and try their hand at the trades.
The event was a collaboration between Bell Baxter High School, Cupar THI/CARS, Fife Council, Fife Historic Building Trust, Stone Federation Great Britain, Construction Industry Training Board, Scottish Contractors Group and National Federation of Roofing Contractors.
