Well Done!

Congratulations to Thomas Fitzsimmons on completing our Navigate Life course. He is seen above being presented with his bag of tools by Martin Hughes, our training manager along with some of his fellow trainees and Galgael volunteers. Thomas has been volunteering meantime in the workshop. We would also like to welcome the latest batch of Navigate Life trainees who joined at the beginning of April and we hope they enjoy their time here and get some valuable experience during their time at Galgael.

Oot and aboot.

We found a new destination for some of or future Friday excursions. The "Whangie" is a hill just South of Loch Lomond and offers commanding views of the loch and surrounding countryside.
Also in the vicinity, an amazing gully with a burn runnuing through it like a mini Scottish Grand Canyon with an overhanging rock known as the Devil's Pulpit. The trainees and volunteers were raving about it when they got back so it looks like we will be going back.
