Ballgreen Tunnel Project

As your local community organisation we are keen to encourage support for this excellent project.

A local group is concerned about the state of this tunnel and would like to do something to improve the access to and from the school, the library, bus stops, post office and other shops and to the Balgreen tram stop.

is needed to gather ideas and get the project underway. An online survey has been suggested but help is needed to set that up. Any computer whizz kids out there? This could be part of a school project or for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

Professional help would also be appreciated. A meeting at our Community Hall is a possibility , would you be interested in that? Please send your suggestions to the email address on the poster bigweebalgreentunnelproject@gmail.com

Community Event to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Our hall and grounds are free to use on Sunday 5th June. The events suggested include

1) an afternoon tea party run along the lines of 'The Big Lunch' ie bring your own food and share

.2) fancy dress party eg dress like a queen/princess, outfits from 1950's

3) Make your own crown competition

4) Childrens' games and /or treasure hunt

5) Local musicians or dancers to use the stage We are open to any other suitable ideas but no one on the committee is around to organise the event.

We are lucky to have the hall in case of poor weather but there are also gazebos which can be used outside and the big BBQ is available too. Plenty of tables and chairs and bunting for decoration. We are looking for a group of members to take this on and create a memorable day for our community. Anyone interested ? Please contact Sheila Watt in the first instance and let's see if we can get a wee group started.
