It's All Happening Outdoors
Work has been busy still over the past 4 weeks - with a range of volunteers from all ages and locations coming together not only to assist in site development but also getting a chance to work with professionals in hands-on workshops.
We are very grateful to have been visited by a bushcraft leader and a potter, allowing attendees to explore creativity and practical outdoor skills which they may wish to pursue further, and now have the connections to do so
Our direct projects have involved insulation with natural sheep's wool, construction of a yurt, and building benches from reclaimed wood and palettes. This has allowed our volunteers a chance to learn how to work with a range of tools and materials they might not get to normally. Everyone has really enjoyed these sessions and felt a sense of community and achievement.
We have our Open Day to look forwards to on the 18th June, and have to share thanks to the Queens Platinum Jubilee and National Lottery Community Fund, as well as SIS, SOSE, Rotary Club of Duns and Sports Scotland, who have all been instrumental in funding this move.
