Arts + Wellbeing
We have been full of Christmas cheer for the last couple of weeks at Gallery 966. Last week we were crafting away like wee elves in preparation for Govan Loves Xmas and this week we have been recovering and celebrating the festivities with christmas parties and some more casual craft sessions.
First of all to thank everyone involved in Govan Loves Xmas! All of the groups worked so hard to get all the beautiful items ready for the sale – the stalls looked ace and that is thanks to you! Huge thanks to the members that volunteered to help to set up and work on the stalls despite the cold and wet. Thanks also to everyone who made it down to the fayre and visited the stalls – the funds from the sale will contribute directly to all the amazing activities and groups that take place in the gallery.
After recovering (and defrosting!) from Govan Loves Xmas, we’ve had lots of fun this week eating delicious snacks, making gorgeous smelling orange pomanders (had to look up the real name – before it was ‘cloves in oranges’), swapping presents and cards, and giggling away together.
What a great way to round off the year.. Groups will finish this week and recommence on the 14th Jan 🙂 see you then!
