To mark 10 years in business Eden Consultancy decided to become involved in an event which would appeal to the community.

The firm’s partners, Douglas Cameron and Rose O’Connor, came up with a plan to use historic photographs to show how the district had changed over the decades and what it could look forward to.

Working alongside the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historic Monuments of Scotland, The Howgate, Falkirk Community Trust and Falkirk Delivers, they created a Scottish first by turning an empty shopping centre unit into a modern museum.

It will be open until July 13 and already thousands of people have visited.

Douglas said: “It’s been a pretty amazing experience. We can’t thank enough all those we have worked with to put this on, particularly the volunteers who turn up to staff the exhibition.”

Eden, which started off in Denny and later moved to Arnothill, Falkirk, acquired and renovated premises in Hope Street almost two years ago. It provides a service to clients to help them manage change, often in a visual way through “succinct designs, print and marketing”, as well as delivering business projects.

Douglas added: “Rose and I are both Falkirk Bairns and had previously worked for big organisations. We were frustrated by the lack of opportunity to deliver the best results for clients and decided to do it our way.

“Hopefully, the project with RCAHMS can be rolled out elsewhere and we are also looking at taking it into care homes for those who weren’t able to get along.

“We have a strong base of local and national clients and would like to thank them for their support over the last 10 years.”
