A bit less Dreich in Breich!
Volunteering & Training
Well we finally got through the bleakest January in history! Our CAVLAP volunteering and training programme is going well with everything from pond clearing to archaeological surveying and outdoor first aid training. This month we have been making hazel hurdles, hosting a sawmill demo and chainsaw training plus lots more.
The workshop has been very busy with 2 weekly school group sessions, weekly training sessions, the microbusiness pilot and all this on top of the usual work. Well done Stewart!
Joss’s soft and hard landscaping team is also doing extremely well and we are seeing more folk getting the opportunity to learn a wide range of landscaping skills in this little team.
Shirley has been weaving the willow to make Breich a little less dreich (as Stewart said)!
In March we have a monthly craft session starting, more willow weaving structures to build, more planters to build for our polytunnel, more training and much preparation for the spring. With such a varied programme of activities folk are really enthusiastic about the new and improved CCI.
Our participants, mentors and staff have been working their socks off – THANK YOU!
Next job club drop in sessions will be on Wednesday 24th February: 1-3pm in the training room in the barn. All are welcome to have a chat about volunteering, college, CV’s and finding employment.
