A Hive of Activity

The Galgael workshop is really buzzing at the moment with the new intake of participants and folk from the previous intake. The workshop staff are keeping them all busy and most importantly they seem to be enjoying it. Thanks to one of the new participants, Hughie who made a fine pot of soup (beef broth) for all the troops today.

New Trainee Intake

We would like to welcome our new intake of GalGael trainees who joined the course two weeks ago. Among them we have a Hungarian, an Eritrean and a Georgian as well as four Glasgow lads.
We all got a bit better aqauinted when we visited Hampden park on Friday, getting a tour of the stadium as well as the Museum of Scottish Football. We had to lift Wee Rosie over the turnstile and James got a high-five from one of his Ibrox heroes (see pics).
The craic was good and big Janos was delighted to see a photo of Ferenc Puskas, the Hungarian football genius who almost won the European Cup single-handedly for Real Madrid in 1954 by scoring four goals at Hampden (see pic). Most of the gang were football fans and it was great to relive some old memories of classic games from the past.

The guys are back on the benches this week and we will keep you posted on their progress.

GalGael are back into the swing of things in 2009 and we were very happy to award tool kits and Galgael certificates to Craig MacGregor and George Carroll on completion of our Navigate Life course. The lads will be doing a bit of volunteering for a spell and hopefully we will be able to support them with any future plans.
