Park Life! A progress update

Posted by abernethyparkproject on July 27, 2013 at 3:20 AM Comments comments (1)

Hands up who’s been brave enough to attempt the double pole slidy thing in Williamson Park or who’s been birled off either of the roundabouts?

There may still be a couple of things to be perfected but isn’t it great to have two shiny new playgrounds in the village? We’ll be looking for your feedback on what we’ve achieved so please keep your eye on this website and our Facebook page.

Hopefully you’ve noticed the progress being made in both Powrie and Williamson Parks?

Thanks to the generous donation of time and machinery from Ogilvy Webster (Webster Building Supplies) and John MacGregor (Binn Skips), the old play equipment was removed from both parks and the ground cleared early in January, ready for new equipment to be installed in February.

Great news!

We've secured sufficient funds to begin phase 1 of works at both Williamson & Powrie Parks week beginning 7 January 2013.

Works should be complete by April 2013 (weather pending).

This will mean temporary limited access to some of the equipment at both parks. Hopefully it won't be too much of an inconvenience.

Ceilidh Dance Fun (and thanks)

Posted by abernethyparkproject on December 1, 2012 at 4:35 PM Comments comments (0)

The ceildih was organised as a fundraiser for the Parks Project.

It seemed a good idea for everybody to have some fun and enjoyment whilst raising money for the parks.

The hall was decorated in a tartan theme, the lighting reduced to give a softer ambience and the bar set up in a corner; all we needed were the dancers.

Well they came, looked, were happy and the evening took off to be one of the best evenings of entertainment; dancing, laughter and all round fun.

Our clothes swap day...

By 10 am there were about 60 bin bags full of clothes, shoes and so on covering most of the pavilion floor. Thank goodness we’d managed to borrow plenty of clothes rails. Special thanks to Kirsty Baird of Tootsie& Fudge who brought loads (it helps to know someone in the rag trade) :)

It took 5 people the rest of the day to hang up and sort the masses ...
