Centipede Project: Muirhouse is.. Home... in pansies and violas
The Centipede Project’s ‘Muirhouse is…’ competition brought in over 120 entries from across the area, with all ages getting involved through the Muirhouse library, the local primary schooIs, the Millennium Centre, Muirhouse Housing Association, the local churches and through NEA itself.
The winning entrywas the
word 'HOME', suggested by Donna Aldridge who made a lovely design for it. This has now been brought to life with the help of over 60 volunteer gardeners who came along last Friday to plant the word home using pansies and violas. Please watch this space over the coming weeks and months where it will continually transform with the changing seasons.
Create Project every Thursday & Saturday
Create; our popular group for children under 5 and their parents and carers has received funding from The Big Lottery fund to allow the project to continue in 2013. They meet every Thursday & Saturday 10am - 12noon. The project offers active childhood experiences and encourages a range of learning skills, for the adults in terms of parenting, and in the children in terms of core strength, motor skills, focus and enjoyment.
The Create Project provides the resources, ideas, guidance and creative inspiration for a range of activities that could be replicated in the home environment using recycled, cheap and easily obtainable materials.
