Ballast Trust: A History

3:53 PM

I'm delighted to be able to share the official Ballast Trust history. This has been published by the Trustees to mark and celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Ballast Trust.

We are sending hard copies out in the post this week to organisations and individuals we have worked with over the last 25 years, our volunteers and other relevant organisations. But this online version also means that we can share our beautifully designed history* with other interested parties.


While December 2012 was the 25th anniversary of the official Trust deed being set up, the operations of the Ballast Trust really got going throughout 1988 when work begun on the huge job at Port Glasgow to process the Scott Lithgow records. So for this reason, throughout 2013, we'll be tweeting extracts from Bill's diaries to try and get a sense of what the Trust was doing in its first full year of operations (mainly sorting and rolling lots of plans!!).

*Our history was designed and printed by Resolve Creative.
