THERE will be lots going on at the Heart of Scotstoun this week as they hold a special ceremony and a tea party to inaugurate their Peace Garden.

Local historians Sandra Malcolm and Moira Logan will be at the community centre for celebrations of the 1918 centenary on Friday, November 9.

A presentation of what Scotstoun was like in 1918 will be shown to pupils from Scotstoun Primary and St Paul’s Primary school and there will be a display of photographs from archives in the Heart of Scotstoun’s hall.

Pupils will be in with the chance to help plant trees and daffodil bulbs, donated by community members.

The Peace Garden incorporates a commemoration of the 1918 centenary and an acknowledgement that there are Scotstoun residents who have left conflict in their ‘home countries’ to live in peace. On Saturday, November 10, a Vintage Tea Party will be held in the centre from 1pm until 4pm where the archives will be on display to the public.

Green Garden contributors and volunteers who have been working on the outdoor community resource at the centre have been invited as a formal ‘thank you’ along with community leaders.

Members of the community are being encouraged to go along.
