A FULL day of fun for all ages was had at Dunterlie Resource Centre as residents gathered from throughout the community.

The event was doubly important as Barrhead Housing Association secured funding from the Climate Challenge Fund to start a conversation about recycling and growing in Dunterlie.

Friday was their first chance to involve community members in the planning of the event.

Growing Dunterlie’s Green Gigglers and Family Fun afternoon and evening session offered families a chance to get fed and learn about the benefits of growing their own food, as well as giving little ones an afternoon of play.

Eating was at the top of the list of priorities on the day, with the early group, aimed at toddlers, giving children a chance to make their mark by planting some seeds.

Meanwhile, The Real Junk Food Project proved a popular choice after providing the food.

People from across Dunterlie and beyond attended the event, with Councillor Angela Convery calling it a “great success” on social media.

Growing Dunterlie was organised and delivered by volunteers from the Dunterlie Planning Group, who have recently formed.

Community co-ordinator Laura Mathieson said: “The group is made up of local volunteers and representatives from groups who regularly use the centre.

“They expressed an interest in working together to make things happen in Dunterlie Resource Centre and this was a perfect opportunity to get started.

“We have been overwhelmed by the support offered by partners in the community.”
