At Shettleston Community Growing Project site in Eckford Street, we held our first barbecue on Sunday 26 June 2011.

Approximately forty members, our families and friends attended the event and a great time was had by all. The rain held off (just) and Bob and Anne kept us going with kebabs, burgers and hot dogs. Other members contributed refreshments, home baking and other good stuff to eat. We enjoyed salad and vegetables picked from our plots. Jane supplied us with Elderflower champagne made from elderflowers picked from the tree on site. It was lovely!

It was great to see this former derelict site transformed into a hub for the community to meet and relax. Members took the day off from digging and planting and enjoyed dining al fresco and chatting to family and friends.
