Toryglen woodland hosts a refugee fest
Ruglonians are being encouraged to celebrate the 2017 Refugee Festival Scotland with a special event at Malls Mire Community Woods.
The event, to be held on Thursday, will include a range of outdoor activities, including cooking on an open fire, a woodland photo walk, arts and crafts, film screening in a cinema yurt and a‘treasure’ hunt.
The Woodland Connections event is organised by Open Aye, a social enterprise providing photography workshops to various groups, and funded by Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS).
Romena Huq, engagement officer at FCS, said:“Forest and woodland based events are always great fun and we are especially looking forward to this one, which will have the cinema yurt screening a range of short films focussed around refugee issues for both kids and adults to learn and enjoy.”
Becky Duncan of Open Aye said:“We hope to share food, music, film, photos, crafts, ideas and jokes - everything is free.
“Whatever the weather, the woods will shelter us and connect us. Everyone is welcome.”
The Woodland Connections event runs from 3pm to 8pm and is free to attend.
