    Great start to the Jewellery Making Course! For week 1 what an amazing selection of glittering gorgeous bracelets were produced – well impressed! Great to see faces from the previous Beginners Course back for Progressors at Ibrox. Lot’s of new faces at Cardonald – all went out the door wearing their creations – always a good sign! Let the fun begin so bring your specs if you need them and start buying bigger jewellery boxes. “Feeling proud” was the most used comment of the day.

    The film tells the story of the mysterious Govan Banners – found on May Day 1979 – wrapped in newspapers and forgotten for 40 years. Working with director, Kirsten MacLeod, The Seniors Film Club went on a journey to finally uncover their origins and tell the story behind their creation.

  5. The Portal Fun Day – Don’t Rain On Our Parade

    Leave a Comment

    The weather may have rained us out but we didn’t let that deter us from having a blast at The Portal fun day last month.  Rolling 3 events into one, such multi-taskers are we, we celebrated the new look Portal, launched our new Arts and Culture Programme, and also our new website, over an afternoon of fun-filled chaos.

    The day was abuzz with a whole hubbub of activity going on around us.  From live music to football; from face-painting to circus skills; from arts and crafts to a community exhibition, there really was something to suit the whole family.  We even brought a taste of the Caribbean to Govan with our juice bar – which went down an absolute triumph!

    It was also the first chance to catch the premier of our brand new promotional film ‘500 Days of (Scottish) Summer’, an aptly named piece given mother nature’s climate! The promo video, which can be found on our website page, received a great reception from all who saw it and who no doubt went home happy and with ‘Hall & Oates’ stuck in their head.

    You can check out our pictures from the event on our facebook page, there are more to be added, but it gives a starter, and if you yourself took any, then feel free to add them too and don’t forget that by signing up to our newsletter you will be entered into a draw to win an ipad mini.

    All in all it was a great day for the team, volunteers and hopefully for all of you!  And we showed that it takes more than a puddle or two (or three…or four…or…) to dampen our spirits.
