Two volunteers working with kids in Methilhill are celebrating after completing a nine-month sustainability course with the Coalfields Regeneration School.
Shirley Faichney and Nicola Alexander of Methilhill Community Children’s initiative (MCCI) - which aims to build an all-purpose building at their half-acre learning garden - both receieved expert tuition from Tracey Muirhead of the School for Social Entrepreneurs Scotland.
Shirley said: “I thought the course was absolutely fantastic.
“Apart from the formal sessions, we learned a huge amount from our fellow students, many of whom had overcome the sort of problems we are running into daily with our new development”.
Tracey Muirhead added: “This course was all about sustainability, which is a big issue for social enterprises in the present financial climate.
“We attracted an excellent group of delegates who were a joy to work with and who are doing great things in their Coalfield Communities against all the odds.”
