High Street Neighbours
by Katie Anderson
What might a High Street community look like?
Who, or what else, lives in the town centre?
The usage of the word ‘neighbour’ has been in steady decline since the 1840’s.
It’s been Guid Nychburris (Good Neighbours to all of those not originally from or local to Dumfries), this week and the Stove has been exploring ‘neighbourliness’ as part of our current Conversing Buildings project. The building has gone a little Christo inspired, in what is definitely the brightest and boldest we have gone with celebratory decorations so far.
The sign board has also had a make over, prompting our latest favourite anagram game.
