Giant Boulder

 

 

Safedem have helped out the local Brunswick Community Centre in the Balornock area by removing one of the giant boulders from outside 21 Birnie Court and relocating it outside the centre. The boulder weighs around 6 tonne and will have a plaque attached to it to commemorate the people who were kept as prisoners of war in Brunswick, Germany and without whom this centre would never have been built.
