Yesterday’s Opening Event for our Outdoor Classroom and new community facilities went exceptionally well – we even managed to dodge all the threatened showers!
Thanks go especially to Rita Callander from Greenspace Scotland who came along to open the Octagon in her role as Community Enabler for Tesco Bags of Help, to Kevin Anderson, Manager of our local TESCO branch for coming along to show his support and to Liz Hancock from RGU, who have provided so much support for the Community Garden over the last five years..
Thanks too to all the plotters, volunteers and friends who worked so hard on the day to make the event a success and to those who could not make it, but contributed raffle prizes and donations.
It was super to have so many friends from The MacMillan Cancer Charity join us. The raffle brought in £146 and proceeds will be split equally between GFAA and MacMillan.
