Happy Monday. We are all ready for a shorter week in Nursery, with Friday being a Staff In Service Day where Nursery will be closed. Next Monday and Tuesday are school holidays – however our nursery will be open and children are welcome to attend for a payable session and bring a packed lunch. If you would like your wee one to come in, please ask for a form at the nursery office. Wednesday is also a Staff In Service Day and Nursery will be closed for the day.
This week we have SFA football training for our pre-school children on Thursday.
We are going to do a bit of planting this week, now that our polytunnel has been cleared and we are going to plant some primulas in our outdoor pots. Now that we are at last in to February, we will be looking for signs that Spring is on its way out in our garden and orchard.
Winter Wanderland Weekend
This week our nursery is creating some window art for Tesco, for Milngavie’s Window Wanderland, which takes place next weekend. On Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd between 6pm and 9pm our shops will be lit up and there will be a “Winter Walking Trail” for families to follow to see all the sights.
Window Wanderland was inspired by Lucy Reeves Khan, who came up with the idea in 2015, after her career as a designer ended abruptly and an accident left her disabled. Since then, it has inspired other communities to organise their own winter walking trails such as: Ayr, Maryhill and Govan. This is not only a regional event, it is also a worldwide event in countries such as Ireland, Canada and France.
Our local Milngavie community is being encouraged to open their curtains and create window displays to amuse, entertain, and enthrall each other for a weekend of fun. Our school is helping decorate some Tesco’s windows, which will be part of an inclusive and wonderful winter walking trail, which everyone can participate in by coming out to enjoy. It sounds like a fun way to spend a winter evening!
