A Call for Help

We have recently came across in storage the original school bell that was housed in the 1870 built Whitehills School situated near the present library. The bell is rather old and rather heavy but other than some rust and dirt we think it remains in fairly good condition.

We would ideally like to see if we could get the bell restored and cleaned up so we could give it pride of place in the current Forbes Road school as part of a display reflecting on the history of Whitehills School and the community.

If anyone does, or would know of someone, who specialises in restoring antiques, or objects of this nature we would love to hear from you! You can PM the school Facebook or give the school office an email at

Please feel free to share this post far and wide too!
