Winning winter group night ideas share

Wednesday, 28 November 2018

Over 60 people from all Scottish districts got together for a day of fun and sharing ideas in Falkirk in mid November. Young people and adults rotated around 5 idea stations where they picked up different ideas for group nights. These stations were smoothie making, soup making and knifework, craft origami book marks, anti plastics campaigning, Common Ground camp, and water issues. In true co-operative style each person was invited to bring a vegetable or fruit to add to the soup and smoothies.
