In recent weeks, outdoor volunteers across Scotland have been planning a series of environmental activities to welcome in the autumnal months.
Activities will see disability groups developing a horticultural centre in Falkirk, Ethnic Minority Women’s Groups training in gardening skills in North Edinburgh, and a commuters group in Croy reclaiming derelict land around the train station, to name but a few.
A free pop-up exhibition, uncovering the stories of some of the 80,000+ members of the Durham Light Infantry who served in WW1 opens on July 29th at the Chester-le-Street Library.
Community Service Volunteers (CSV) has created the exhibition in partnership with Chester-le-Street Heritage Group which brings together photographs, letters, keepsakes, uniforms and medals - reflecting the North East’s heritage and the human cost of war.
A commemoration garden built in memory of the 100 year anniversary of the First World War will open at Oakdale Library, Poole, on Saturday 26th July.
Thanks to a project by CSV’s Retired and Senior Volunteers, visitors will be able to enjoy a transformed garden home to poppies, planters and a plaque dedicated to the memory of the fallen.
