Food Bank Collection

As you know we have been collecting toiletries and food for the East Renfrewshire Foodbank and we are quite overwhelmed at your generosity. They say Christmas is the time for giving and you truly have. Gail will be dropping all the goodies off tomorrow, just in time to make a difference to many families at Christmas.
Thank you ❤️🎄🎅🏼

Making bird feeders


In the garden admiring the rainbow the toddlers were looking to see if we could see any birds……?  We wondered what could we do to encourage the birds to visit our garden???


we decided to make some delicious food that birds would enjoy, we mixed some lard and bird seeds together……lovely!!!


The children agreed the feeders looked good for the birds but they would prefer their own lunch.


The blackbirds got together and spread the word around Clarkston that the toddlers at Cart Mill Family Centre had made some fabulous feeders for them.

They were joined by some magpies and a robin (please excuse the photography 🤪)

We will be planting some bulbs soon to hopefully encourage more wildlife to visit our garden.
