Have your say

Children and adults from Hayfield Community Centre have been enjoying the fresh produce grown in the premises’ new community garden.

Carol Sidey, organiser of the Hayfield Growing More Project, has been helped by a team of budding gardeners collecting and inspecting the large potato crop, while the Brunch Club enjoyed fresh vegetables in their soup.

Carol will be leading more garden activities today (Thursday) between 10am and noon and all are welcome to come along and join in.

For those who want a taste of the good life in their own back garden, Carol can offer advice and support to translate ideas into reality.

Jackie Rowan, project co-ordinator said:”There has been positive feedback from all who came along to these first mornings, so we hope to continue at fortnightly intervals.”

On August 18 the Parent & Child Group starts up again at 10am after its summer break and there will be a mini-Oympics event in the garden for pre-school children to enjoy. Parents and carers are invited to bring their babies and toddlers to savour healthy snacks and the friendly atmosphere, at £2 a session.

Rounding off the holiday month is a bus trip to Loch Lomond on August 27 with Hayfield’s annual over 50s outing to Loch Lomond via Perth, Crianlarich, Lochearnhead and stopping at Balloch for a cuppa, then on to Bannockburn and the King Robert Hotel for High Tea.

Cost is £15 for non members or £10 for members.

Hayfield Community Centre’s AGM will take place on August 28 at 2pm, with time for a lunchtime snack and a chat about what is going on at the centre and the chance to renew your membership.
