Shettleston Community Growing Project

This year's Family Fun Day will take place on the afternoon of Sunday 9th August at the Shettleston Community Growing Project site (entrance via 26 Ardgay Street).

Family Fun Day in the sun

The event, which is run jointly with Shettleston Housing Association, is now in its fourth year - last year, it rained for almost the whole day, yet despite this, over 200 people came along and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. We can't promise the sun but we do guarantee that the Family Fun Day is a date not to be missed!

The event is bigger and promises to be even better than before with a special appearance by Carmen Pieraccini (Kelly Marie from River City), FREE ice cream for the weans and free bike checks for all you enthusiastic cyclists.

Family Fun Day

There is much to do with the preparation leading up to the event and on the day. The event would not happen without the help of our volunteers who turn up every year. Thanks to all our regular helpers. The numbers increase year by year and it would be great if we could encourage a few more people to help out. Please let us know if you can help with any of the following:

Before the event

Home baking (always really popular) or shop bought cakes and biscuits to go with the tea/coffee

Ingredients for our bakers – flour, sugar, butter, icing sugar, cake decorations, etc…..

Jam jars needed for jam, chutney and pickles

Jam makers – we have plenty fruit and could do with some more jam makers

Raffle prizes – any unwanted gifts/presents

Bottles for the tombola stall – anything from wine, spirits etc. to wee bottles of juice, shampoo, water….please note that it takes some time to prepare for the tombola, sticking the raffle tickets on all the items so early donations would be appreciated to enable us to get prepared in good time. Also some help for Jane who normally has this job to do.

On the day

9.30 – 12.00   Help with setting up, putting up tents/tables/chairs/stalls etc…

12.00 – 4.00   Help manning stalls, serving teas and coffees, selling raffle tickets, general gofors (is that how you spell it?)…..

4.00 – 5.00   Clearing up after the event

Donations can be left at SHA reception (65 Pettigrew Street) during office hours.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday 9th August - please keep your fingers crossed for sunshine this year!
