Alva Glen Illuminations and Glen Maintenance

aghtOur friends at Alva Glen Heritage trust have asked us to let you know that the fabulous Alva Glen Illuminations are planned for September 13th 2014. As well as a superb light show there will be face painting, glow-in-the-dark merchandise, hot food, and ice cream on sale.

However, if it is to be a success then we need volunteers to help make it happen.

Specifically, we will need some people for Friday September 12th to help erect lights, cables etc.
On Saturday 13th we will need people to act as marshalls and to collect donations in buckets.  Generally people to smile a lot and assist where necessary.
On the Sunday morning we need people to help take down all the lights and cabling.
Please visit if you are able to help.
Also, in order to keep the Glen in the manner to which we like to be accustomed, the group need volunteers for their Wednesday Work Groups. Once a month volunteers meet at the glen for litter-picking, weeding, clearing paths and pathways, cutting back vegetation, pruning back shrubbery, tidying up the Sensory Garden and anything else that may arise. The group meets at 11:00am and are usually finished my 1:00pm. Please visit their website and get in touch if you can help.
