Away up in Gorgie..

....At Tynecastle Park, you could find the Alive & Kickin Sporting Memories participants gathering to hear all about Heart of Midlothian Football Club and see the famous stadium, which is steeped in history.

Thanks to Community Manager Alan White, we were taken on a tour of the ground, looking at the Board Room, Hospitality Suites, including the famous John Robertson Lounge, the Home Changing Room and the Memorial Garden.

Our group were impressed by the many quotes on show around Tynecastle, and how the current Hearts Team pay tribute to the players of 1914 who went to the War and never returned home.

One of the highlights of the tour was meeting one of the most famous Hearts legends John Robertson, who was happy to answer some questions from the avid Hearts (& Hibs) Supporters in our group.

We have future plans to visit Ibrox Stadium and Celtic Park, so if you would like to join our Sporting Memories Programme, the next meeting is on Tuesday 12th April at the Albyn Park, 12.30-2pm.  We provide the pie and bovril, for just £2.
