Pub night (with games!)

Saturday 6 October 2018 (7.30-11.30pm)

@ the Village Hall

It’s Pub Night in the Athelstaneford Village Hall on Saturday 6th October! The pop up pub will be in the village for one night only and this time there’ll be some games so you can challenge your friends to cards, scrabble or something else entirely.

£2 entry per person on the door and a cash bar. Come and pop the prosecco while you play trivial pursuit with your friends or improve your dominoes with a double! Best of all you’ll be contributing towards the school while having a great time, it’s a win-win.

If you’re new to the school or the area then come along and meet some of the friendly community while having a night out. All proceeds will go to Athelstaneford Primary School Parent Council (Registered Charity SCO441133). We’ll see you there!

Growing Matters (Gilmerton House Kitchen Garden)

‘Growing Matters’ is a charity based at Gilmerton House Kitchen Garden aiming to offer a place for volunteers to help develop the garden and to benefit their health and wellbeing.


There are two regular volunteering sessions a week – Monday (10am-1pm) and Thursday (1-4pm). Volunteers can take part in a variety of gardening activities and can do as much or as little as they like. The main aim is to offer an environment for people to enjoy the benefits of working alongside others in a peaceful and relaxing environment and there are opportunities to learn more about gardening, horticulture and beekeeping. There is also a volunteer-led therapeutic horticulture session on Wednesdays (9.30am-12.30pm) which includes some meditation, mindful walking, sharing and and gardening.

All sessions have tea breaks and there is usually some home baked cake!

Open day (Saturday 1 September – 11am-4pm)

June Tainsh will demonstrate apple pruning at around 11.45am, there will be refreshments and an opportunity to learn more about the garden and our aims.

For more information about the project or to get involved please contact Jerry or Di on 01620 880244.

You can also follow the project on their Facebook Page or on Twitter (@gilmertongarden).
