Norton House Work Party

We welcomed a great group of volunteers from the Norton House Hotel at the beginning of December who kindly came out for the day to get stuck in to our garden and stables.  This time of year all the lovely plants are not looking their best and need a good hair cut to take them in to the winter months.

They came armed with cake for the humans and apples for the horses, so as you can imagine it went down very well indeed.

Thank you to Peter, Chris, Frances, Hannah, Lyndsay, Johnny, Brian, Iona, Hollie, Lauren, Daragh and James.  James who is the Norton House gardener made sure the team worked hard in our garden and made everything look gorgeous.  Johnny was a bit obsessed with our power hose but the area outside the stables is gleaming in the sun.  A big thank you for all your hard work and making Ravelrig tidier, and shinier we appreciate your support.

We are so grateful to ALL our wonderful work parties who have been out this year giving us their time and energy gardening, painting, sanding, building and generally putting in a lot of elbow grease.  They are able to do the jobs that we just don’t have time to do and it really makes such a difference.

We have had people from lots of places, including Lloyds, Bank of Scotland, Cadence, HSBC and Green Investment Bank.

If your work offers you community days why not come and help at Ravelrig during 2018.
