Community Fund – Broomhouse – December Update

BHSG Shop and volunteers

In December our volunteers and BHSG staff had a fantastic festive outing to Dumfries to visit the ‘The Usual Place’, which is a local community project. Their local team that created the café and training kitchen in Dumfries a few years ago had previously come to find out how we run our BHSG services to get some ideas from us in Broomhouse. So we really enjoyed getting in the minibus and travelling over to the South West of Scotland to see and experience their wonderful community cafe. We had a delicious lunch, a tour and a wander down to the very pretty town, with a walk by the river. Highly recommend a visit there.

Tasty Bites Thursdays – we had our ongoing generous donations from ‘Tesco Fareshare’ and shared many tasty recipe bags with our service users in the shop.

2017  –We are currently promoting and planning our new term of exercise and cooking activities starting in January, we are delighted to say that Nation Lottery have awarded us four years of funding to help us offer our activities in the local community.  We had a nice break over Christmas and New Year to give our volunteers a well-deserved holiday.
