Please come along to the An Cridhe regular volunteer garden work parties with the young Project Volunteers who offer their time to help in the community as part of their selection process.
The first of these is Thursday 26th November, when we will be planting daffodils in remembrance of John Waters who was the Key Holder of the Old Hall.
This is an opportunity to spend time with enthusiastic young people and help them find out more about living on the Isle of Coll
There are also general maintenance tasks such as caring for the young trees, tackling the brambles and planting donations of cuttings etc.
We work from 9 - 12pm with a cuppa break around 10.30. You are welcome to pop in at a time that suits you,
Look forward to seeing you here,
