We are really excited to announce that we’ve been awarded £10,000 from Dulux and their ‘Let’s Colour’ grant scheme, to undertake a colour transformation of Broomhouse market and mural wall, as well as an upgrade of our shop interior. We are just one of 4 Flagship Projects that have been granted this award across the UK. The project will start with a Public Consultation Meeting on Tuesday 26th June 7-9pm in St Joseph’s Church, Broomhouse St North. We are looking for volunteers from the local and wider area who would like to contribute their ideas at two design workshops with a community artist in July & August, as well as volunteers to help with the preparation and painting work in September. Sounds interesting? Then please drop us a line on 4677678.
We’ve also had a busy month with lots of events – from our AGM & Big Lunch, which attracted over 40 people to share a delicious vegetarian feast and vote in the new committee, to School Health Week events at two of the local schools, where Maeve and Niamh, our two nutrition student volunteers, got students designing and trying smoothies, and the younger pupils making and eating fun fruit faces – a busy month indeed!
