Yorkhill and Kelvingrove Community Gala Day

Wednesday, 14 September 2016

On Sunday September 11th Kelvingrove Woodcraft Folk joined forces with the Glasgow Children's Wood to run the children's activities at the Yorkhill and Kelvingrove Community Gala Day.  About 300 people attended including about 100 children and young people.

The area is an inner city, economically deprived area and the gala was raising funds to restore local green spaces.  Most people I talked to were previously unaware of Woodcraft Folk and our aims.

Pioneers helped with the crafts and leading parachute games and some of our Elfins and Woodchips joined in the fun too.

One mum whose little one joined the games said "It's great to see young people giving up their weekend to help out.  My wee girl loves a big girl so joined right in!"
