Community Fund – Broomhouse – November Update

BHSG Shop and volunteers

We have two new volunteers training with us at the moment and recent volunteers in the shop are busy undertaking further training with us. One of our volunteers has recently taken up an employment opportunity.

We are planning a Christmas outing to Dumfries  to a café called ‘The Usual Place’ who visited up some time ago to see how we ran our community project.

Tasty Bites Thursdays – we have shared many recipe bags with COSS (  Advice &Foodbank) next door and also our service users.

Our physical activities and cooking groups have been busy this term too, we had up to 8 participants in our relatively new ‘Tone & Flex. Lots of young people and their families have enjoyed Cooking up a Story, all our regular groups( walking and chair exercise) have new members and many longer term users too. We are promoting out newest class ‘Duo’ to the neighbourhood, parents/friends and children come along to exercise together in pairs or with is if they come along themselves, while the children play nearby. It takes place in the gym at Wester Hailes( E4L) on a Monday, great fun and is a short high intensity session. Free of charge .
