Banana Muffins

We received a huge bag of bananas from the Co-Op for our community larder today and decided to make some banana muffins. They are really tasty and we thought that people might like to try them and also try to make them themselves. We still have plenty of bananas left so come along to the community centre and help yourself to some and also pick up a little bag with a muffin and a recipe in it 🍌

Soup Share

We had a very busy final soup share of the 2021/2022 session yesterday. Thank you to everyone who came along to share some soup, bread, cakes and, most importantly, chat. It was lovely to see you and we look forward to welcoming you back when we return after the summer holidays.

Cambusbarron Gala Day

Great to be at Cambusbarron Gala Day and see so many of our children having so much fun despite the rain. That said CVN children are very used to having great fun in all weathers! It was also lovely to get a chance to speak to children and parents who will be starting with us after the summer and also to meet prospective new families. We are so lucky to be part of such a vibrant community.

Jubilee Afternoon Tea

A big thank you to everyone who came along to our Jubilee Afternoon Tea today. We were fortunate to have chosen such a glorious day and that we were able to sit outside in the sunshine. Our children and staff worked hard to decorate and set up our garden and to make sure there were enough cakes for everyone although there was a time when it looked like we would run out! A big thank you to our helpers, particularly the dishwashers, we really appreciate it.
Thank you too for all the comments and suggestions for our new nursery in the woods, we can’t wait to be able to invite everyone to afternoon tea in our new building!

Sustainable options and opinions!

We’re developing our ideas for our new nursery building in Gillies Hill Community Woodland and wanting to get some ideas and suggestions from the wider community. We’d really like to hear from you about experiences, ideas and suggestions on how to make sure our building is ethically and sustainably built. Please take some time to give us your ideas via this google form.

Growing Time

We’ve been getting on with planting our vegetables in the Walled Garden at Gillies Hill Community Woodland this week. We’ve been planting the beans, turnips, carrots, courgettes, onions and beetroot that we sowed before the Easter holidays. So far we have filled one of the beds where the old greenhouses used to be. Next week we hope to get our raised bed planted too!
