Shettleston Community Growing Project

Our annual Family Fun Day, organised in conjunction with Shettleston Housing Association, was a huge success. The rain (mostly) stayed away and the community garden and raised beds allotment site looked in tip top condition.

We welcomed as many as 300 people through the gates between 12noon and 4pm, including plotholders and members, their friends and families, staff and volunteers from Shettleston Housing Association, local residents of all ages, Mr Giggles (aka Gordon), Hugh from Forestry Commission Scotland, Sadie from The Walking Theatre Company and professional chef Alison, Evelyn from Shettleston Energy Advice, Yvonne (musician), the guys from Freewheel North, Baillie Anne Simpson, John Mason MSP, our very own Smelly Wellies and Green Volunteers and assorted small animals.

We've just added photos of the day to our Photo Gallery. And we've been sent a link to even more photos taken on the day (thanks Jan). Please do tweet us (@shettlestongrow) or visit our Facebook page to tell us what you liked about the day and let us know how we can improve it further next year.
