Residents from Monkbarns’ Abbey lounge add their poem about Arbroath’s history to the home’s collection

The third in a series of wonderful poems about Arbroath, to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath, has been added by residents from Balhousie Monkbarns’ Abbey lounge.

The latest poem, called ‘Arbroath of Yesteryear’, talks of pageants to celebrate the Declaration of Arbroath signed at the town’s Abbey which is the same ‘Abbey’ the residents’ lounge is named after.

The creative project is being led by Activities Co-ordinator Kirsty Taylor who has been helping residents in each of the home’s four lounges to each create a poem about their home town. Fraser and Seaview have already contributed their poems with the Abbey lounge being added and just one more to be completed by Scott lounge for the full collection of poems.
