Take 2: CFN Festive Trips!

CFN Trip to Rosemount Development Trust 30th Anniversary Celebrations

01st December 2019

It was great to join the Royston community for an afternoon of Christmassy fun for Rosemount Development Trust‘s 30th anniversary.

Ruby, our Children and Families Network producer, went along with a couple of CFN families from Maryhill and the Gorbals and a few of their friends. It was great to meet lots of new families and join them in a family takeover of Royston Road with a lantern parade featuring fantastic Caterpillar Lanterns decorated by local groups and classes. The Glasgow Playbus was another highlight – a huge double decker bus full of soft play tunnels and obstacles! It was also good to get some hot homemade lentil soup (a bit like our Porridge & Play soup!) made by Julia and her colleagues at North Glasgow Community Food Initiative – thank you!

CFN Trip to see A Lad in Maryhill Pantomime

4th December 2019

It was great to be joined by families from Maryhill, Ruchill and Govanhill for our CFN trip to the panto here at the CCH. We’re grateful to Halo Arts and the West End Festival for the preview night tickets.

It was especially good to play a round of Funky Chicken while we had our mince pies beforehand! Good to see some older children from St Marys Storyplay 2018 still playing the game with great enthusiasm, as well as some of our youngest guests giving it their all!
