Shettleston Community Growing Project

The fantastic Smelly Welly Club is back, thanks to funding from Radio Clyde Cash for Kids. Sessions take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 12noon to 2pm with lunch provided. Members of the club (aged 8-12), sessional workers and others gave a warm welcome to Margaret Curran MP on her recent visit.

Yellow jerseys spotted in Shettleston (and other news)

We're also delighted to be working with Shettleston Housing Association again this year to organise another Family Fun Day (Sunday 11 August from 12noon to 4pm, enter via Community Garden, 26 Ardgay Street). All welcome!

Our Green Volunteers have been working hard in this glorious weather - we've refreshed the planters at Shettleston Train Station and have started building a rockery in our Community Garden (though we all downed tools to listen to the Wimbledon Final on Sunday - a great result!).

One of our committee members (and a Gold Star Volunteer) is planning to swim 2km to raise funds for the group. If you would like to help us raise funds, please get in touch with us (tweet @shettlestongrow or contact Marion Bate on 07530 985 483).

Finally, the site is looking amazing thanks to the talents and efforts of sessional staff, volunteers and plot holders - compare it now to what it used to look like in our first year - a real transformation!
