Falkirk Wheel Trip – Friday 26 July 2019

What a great day out: weather was kind, wonderful company as usual and what a joy to see this feat of engineering!  (Love how the Falkirk area has been regenerated, with its beautiful Kelpies and Wheel).

We enjoyed our picnics, ice creams, laughs and watching all the families enjoying their day out. Grateful thanks to all who made this possible.

Kelpies Trip – 7 June 2019

On the go again! A fabulous day out to see The Kelpies – lots of sunshine and just one wee shower of rain. A brilliant day from start to finish and thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was sheer joy to see these beautiful sculptures close up. Thank you to Amy at the Helix Visitor Centre for all her help in organising the trip; Jim for his wonderful commentary on our guided tour, and David our ELC bus driver for transporting us safely. Jim explained just how important the whole Helix project has been in regenerating the Falkirk area, with all proceeds from the guided tours, gift shop sales, etc all going to benefit the wider community. Our heartfelt thanks to all in the Dunbar Community and beyond, whose generous donations make trips like this possible.

Afternoon Tea at Dunbar Garden Centre – 23 May 2019

What a lovely afternoon at Dunbar Garden Centre to celebrate the first anniversary of the official launch of Dunbar Dementia Network.  The  company was excellent, the tea was flowing and the cakes and savouries were delicious.

The afternoon was rounded off nicely, choosing some plants to donate to the Sanctuary Garden at The Backlands.  All in all, gorgeous weather, great company and food, with time spent in beautiful surroundings.

Visit to Belhaven Community Garden – 28 March 2019

Lovely afternoon at Belhaven Community Garden for the first of our seasonal visits.  Beautiful afternoon, great company (as well as delicious scones – thank you Lucy).  Weather so good that we were able to spend most of the time walking in the gardens, taking in all the new growth and checking out the new plants in the poly tunnel.
