Tealing in the Millennium
We make news headlines and win awards!
In the year 2000 the people of Tealing wanted to celebrate their heritage, make an enduring record of the past and share their pride in the area with others.
Two major projects were decided on - a permanent photographic history exhibition in Tealing Hall and publication of a book called Tealing the Gateway to Angus. The local response was amazing. People searched their lofts and cubby-holes for old press cuttings, photos and other memorabelia. Local community groups got involved and people of all ages rallied around to help pull the projects together.
On 3 June 2000 all of the planning and hard work paid off at a major event in Tealing Hall attended by hundreds of people and local dignitaries, where the photographic exhibition was formally opened and the book was launched. The news in the book that Russian Foreign Minister, Molotov, had landed secretly at Tealing Airfield in 1942 on his way to meet Churchill in London attracted lots of media attention and our little village was featured on the national news covered by the BBC, STV and many national and local newspapers. The icing on the cake and a source of huge local pride was when we won the Angus Achievers Community Award 2000 and were also shortlisted for the Calor Gas Community of the Year Awards.
To mark the year 2000, we also asked community leaders and representatives to each say something about the changes they have seen over the years and their hopes for the future of the village. Read what they said below.
