#BallastTrainee A week of preparation and a monthly favourite!

4:52 PM

This week I have been focussing on preparing for our upcoming twitter campaign #Ballast30! As this monthly favourite is also focussing on #Ballast30, I thought I would combine them both as I have spent this month planning the start of our 30th anniversary celebrations.

I have also started box listing material from Clyde Navigation Trust and Clyde Port Authority, this is a large collection of volumes, drawings and other material which will then be catalogued before going to Glasgow City Archives.

Beginning 1st June, we will be kick starting our celebrations with #Ballast30 where we will be sharing facts on twitter all about the Ballast throughout the month!

Taking inspiration from the Archives and Records Association #Archive30 and #Museum30, the idea behind this is to give one fact every day about the Trust throughout June; from our favourite quote, getting to know our Ballast dog Gypsy, to understanding our role within the Archives sector. Through this we hope it will raise awareness of what we do at the Trust and provide the opportunity to get to know us better and find out some interesting facts!


We hope you're just as excited as we are! Keep an eye out for this starting tomorrow over on Twitter!
