Community Fund – Lauder Trading Post – March Update
Snow has not stopped crafting in the Borders. The furniture upcycle was completed, with happy participants finishing cherished pieces for their new homes. A new midweek variant is planned, where participants will have the option of getting a free place, if they will sell the furniture they work on to fund the place. Learning a little about sales and trading too! There was a lovely day in Gattonside rag rugging and blind making. Our weekly sewing classes at Langlee Community Centre have been very popular and the class begged for an extension until the end of April. We were delighted to receive confirmation of Comic Relief funding, that will see machine sewing classes for unemployed under 25’s, starting this summer.
