What's happening and coming up?

Next Burn Bin - Sunday July 31st

A Burn Bin session will be held from 10:00- 13:00 Sunday July 31st . There will be a piece of pork in the oven. Please do not bring anything to burn after 13:00, but come join us for some hog roast and whatever other goodies appear.  

Store season has ended

The store season runs from April to early July, with most sales taking place in May. Many thanks to all of the volunteers who staffed the store this year and particularly to Mary who managed the staffing rota. You can still buy stuff from the store if needed, just speak to Andy. Please be aware that all of the compost is sold out and we are very low on slug pellets. 


What's happened recently?

Burnside Toilet - Now OPEN  

After over two years of closure, due to the pandemic, and after an extensive makeover and deep clean, our toilet was re-opened on Friday June !0th. 

Last Burn Bin - Sunday June 12th

A Burn Bin session was held Sunday June 12th. There was a piece of pork in the oven, which again cooked beautifully, eaten with home made apple sauce in baps. As the Jubilee tea was cancelled the previous week many come along with food to share. The new No 3 Burn Bin design which was manufactured specifically with SMORES in mind worked very well.

New Picnic Benches

The old benches in the Burn Bin / Tearoom area were repaired reclaimed ones and were starting to give up. BUT, we have now purchased some lovely new, heavy duty, benches that will last for many years.
