Dundee Science Centre’s 20th Birthday Gift to City’s Most Deserving Children

Dundee Science Centre is celebrating its 20th birthday by reaching out to some of the city’s most deserving children.

Having launched a Home Learning Digital Programme at the start of the COVID 19 lockdown, Dundee Science Centre is now creating and developing content for ‘Science @ Home’ kits, which will be delivered to families over the next 10 weeks. With initial funding secured for around 350 children, the boxes provide the same practical, hands-on activities as the online programme, but without the need for digital resources such as broadband or devices. The boxes will be packed and delivered with support from The Gate Church, Dundee.

There’s No Place Like Home

Article for A&J Stephen website

What do you think of when you hear the term ‘showhome?’
Wow factor, glitz, glamour?
If you own a Stephen home, you’ll know that these adjectives don’t describe what we do.

Here at Stephen, we’re all about quality and a timeless, understated elegance. We don’t follow trends ‘just because’. We fit out our homes and showhomes to reflect our clients’ wishes, to provide inspiration but in a way where the house can ‘breathe’. After all, the quality speaks for itself without the need for clutter!

As we prepare to start working on the first 42 homes at Mansfield Park, Scone, a combination of bungalows, semi-detached and detached homes, we spoke to Eileen Kesson from Envision near Stirling who has been styling the interiors of our showhomes for almost 20 years.
