A few of us are getting together in The Golden Ball at 5.30 today Friday. We’re looking for ideas and volunteers to organise some community events. Everyone is welcome – the more the merrier.
The marvellous Edibillies have marked the end of the Community Allotment with an impromptu pop up art display. More pictures of todays happening are available here.
For the past four years this little corner of Bishophill has produced all manner of fruit and veg for people to pick and eat totally free of charge.
Now the bulldozers are due to move in as construction begins on the new McCarthy and Stone development.
There is the possibility of a new community plot. If you are interested in helping make this happen, please get in touch ASAP.
The time has come – they are about to do something at Oliver House
So, we will be losing our edible gardenWe would like to say something, so we are planning an art installation on the plot starting at 4pm on Wednesday 5th Oct – tomorrow – and we invite anybody who would like to come accompanied with as many children and felt tips as they can muster
Nothing big but quite poignant
We have been offered a space over the road where we could have raised beds – please let us know if you are interested in carrying on there
Please come tomorrow if you can!
Quick reminder that to mark the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi there will be a short SERVICE OF BLESSING OF PETS TODAY Sunday 2 Oct 4:00pm at St.Mary Bishophill Senior. Donations to go to RSPCA
It’s the time of year when we get together in the Community Garden for a bit of a social.
The usual organisers are not available this year, so we need volunteers if it is going to go ahead.
It just involves publicising the do, and lighting the BBQ.
If you are willing and able to help please get in touch ASAP.
Let’s try and keep the community gatherings going!
