Dedicated volunteers at the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre have given the Post a behind the scenes tour of their latest projects.

The group have been hard at work planning ideas for a mental health awareness trail after their success with their first trails designed for the children in the local area.

Volunteer Steve Nelson told the Post: “It is a garden for everybody. It is a bit of something that appeals to everyone.

“We are planning to get carved leaves coloured in blue put up around the garden.

“Not only will the leaves give directions for the trail but it will also allow people to stop and admire their surroundings whether it be touching, looking, or smelling what is around them.

“We are hoping that it will allow people to be more mindful especially as we are still in a pandemic. We understand how hard it has been for everyone and even harder if you haven’t got your own outdoor space.”

The team have also built a biodiversity wildlife trail for the children to learn about insects that they can find in nature.

Steve added: “It is a wildlife discovery area for them. We have installed fairy houses in there which have doors where the children leave little gifts.”
