Shettleston Community Growing Project

Children and young people from our Smelly Welly club, some as young as four, have been getting to know their local Commonwealth Wood at Auchenshuggle.

Smelly Wellies visit Auchenshuggle Wood

On their first visit in August, they were split into teams of Badgers, Foxes and Hedgehogs and had a lot of fun building a wigwam and a shelter and learning all about trees and wildlife (see Photo Gallery and read more about the visit here).

They returned in September for woodland games, storytelling and a hearty lunch cooked over an open fire.

Next up ... a Halloween themed visit is being planned for Sunday 27th October.

Our thanks to Hugh McNish at Forestry Commission Scotland for first drawing our attention to this place of beauty on our doorstep.
