RESIDENTS were able to tuck into fun games and food at a harvest gala.

More than 250 people attended the event aimed at promoting healthy living. The Kingsway Court Health and Wellbeing Centre provided entertainment and activities as well as cooking demonstrations at Scotstoun on Saturday.

The ingredients used to make soup were harvested from the community garden that includes individual and communal plots for residents and groups to use.

On the day, goody bags with a recipe and all the ingredients for people to go home and make their own were given out and proved to be a “huge hit”.

Lainy Bedingfield, community development worker at the centre, said: “The event was well attended, despite the weather. The community knew it was happening and what would be going on at it.

“A lovely couple asked me if we would do it every weekend.

“We are looking at all the comments we got on the day in more detail and planning ahead for next year to ensure we listen to what our community wants.”

The event that celebrated the food that can be grown in the garden also raised £70 from the tombola to help with the running of the centre.
