A weekly reminisce group in the Scottish Highlands harnessed
the power of meaningful music with help from members of its community.
From musical quizzes and an appearance on local radio, the Whatever the Weather Wednesday group at Gairloch Museum pulled out all the stops to host a Musical Tea on Wednesday 20 September to mark National Playlist Day. Thanks to the generosity of local people, plans came together in perfect harmony.
Sarah Wright, Wellbeing Project Coordinator at Gairloch Museum, said that as plans for the Musical Tea were put in place, it became clear just what a wonderful community she lived in.
A great turnout with a passion for personal playlists
The event was publicised by a local radio station, Two Lochs, with the manager offering to run a show featuring a quiz listeners could join in with at home while talking about National Playlist Day and the Musical Tea at Gairloch Museum.
