Below is some pictures taken at the Riverside at the end of September.

Here we were helped by Chris's Garden Maintenance and his team as well as local volunteers.

The work involved repairing paths that were uneven, mainly due to Moles and flood damage.

We were succesful in obtaining a small grant for us to be able to repair the paths, from the FALLAGO ENVIRONMENT FUND COVID-19 Recovery Footpath Repair Grant Programme 2021.

The November Clean Up.

Thanks for all the helpers, we accomplished quite a lot. Some dead trees replaced, Some new shrubs planted,Hedges and fruit trees pruned but most importantly for the children a 'Willow Den' was created, see pictures below. 

Many thanks to all the people that attended the Duck Race and all the people that helped out on the day. Special thanks to Reston provisions for selling the ducks leading up to the race and special thanks to the Cedar Cafe for the kind donation of the Burgers and Buns.

Below is some pictures taken on the day.

Getting a Big 'Trowels Up' on completion of the planting.

Some of the P 1's and P 2's from Reston primary school with Logan Inglis  (Reston Community Company LTD) receiving the naming plaque from Stephen Adlard (Scottish Agricultural College)  This wood is now registered as 'Inglewood'

Below work started on the New play equipment, the community company asked users of the play equipment "what would you like to see down here" an additional piece of equipment that younger children can use was the answer, the company applied to the community council for some funding and was successful in receiving funds to cover the costs of installing a 'Basket Swing' suitable for All ages.

A special thanks goes to some local people Ken and Hugh both helped out with their tractors, Ken to get the play equipment company and their tools down to the riverside and then Hugh to take their tools away as by the time they had finished work the river had started to rise and was only accessible by tractor. Cheers guys.
