Make a Difference this weekend!

Following the success of their recent Big Green Weekend, the Friends of Cuthill Park are planning a CSV Make a Difference Day event on Saturday 27 October (11-4) and are looking for volunteers.
Friends' Secretary Charlotte Aitchison was confident that the community would support Make a Difference Day and said "We were delighted that so many people turned up to erect bird boxes, dig up weeds and generally improve the park two weeks ago. We are very grateful to the community in Prestonpans and hope they will support us again with a final push before winter
Charlotte continued “We going to be helped by the 1st Prestonpans Guides who have been terrific supporters of the park and previously helped plant bulbs. There will be something for everyone and whether you can come along for 15 minutes to gather seeds or stay for an hour weeding, whatever help you can give really does "make a difference" and is very much appreciated by visitors to the park”.

Come along and join us - there will be certificates and stickers for our young helpers and a limited number of t-shirts for the grown-ups!
