We’re looking forward to holding this event again on September 15th. You can check out photos from our previous events here. It’s a very special afternoon for us because we’ll be celebrating Friends of Elder Park’s 10th Birthday, so why not let us know you are coming along to help us party on our facebook event page.
With less than a month to go we’ve got a lot to do! So, we’d love to hear from you if you;
- would like to get involved in planning or running the event
- are a local performer – musician, poet, dancer…. football tricks…what’s your skill?
- are part of a local group or organisation who would like to contribute an activity to a completely free community event
- are 18-25 and would like to help steward the event – for which you would receive expenses.
Friends of Elder Park are coordinating this event on an entirely voluntary basis (and with a teeny tiny budget, but if we can support other small groups and individuals within the community to get involved then we’d love to! So if your idea would need a little bit of financial support to make it possible then please let us know. Equally, if there’s something you can offer for free – whether that’s your time, talent, or…. a gazebo/ fold-up table/ chairs etc…then we certainly wouldn’t say no! We just want to make sure this is a fantastic, fun, and completely free event for the people of Govan.
FRIENDS, FLOWERS, FOOD & FUN! Oh, and of course it all costs the grand total of £0 to get involved! What more could you want?
We’ll be Litter-Picking, Seed-sowing, planting, and then enjoying some crafts, tunes & tasty food! Further details to be announced closer to the time! Why not let us know you are coming along on Facebook so we know how much tasty food to prepare?!
Our thanks to Plantation Productions for helping to support this event. If you are able to help support this event (or others) in any way then please get in touch! Maybe you can lend some time, maybe you can offer some seeds, maybe you know of a business who is dying to sponsor volunteers delivering community events. We want to hear from YOU!
The new wildflower meadow in Elder Park has been left to grow long and is now ready to plant with wildflowers. Govan Initiative is working with the Council’s Countryside Rangers and Conservation Team to plant the first phase of wildflowers. If you are available, come along to this Meadow in the Making morning on Wednesday 1st November 10 – 12, to help plant wildflowers and find out more.
The flowers will add a splash of colour and help important pollinators like bumblebees and butterflies. There will be some games, arts & crafts and refreshments.
Please spread the word about this event, and keep your eye out for more to follow!
