Staff from Lloyds Banking Group staff have swapped the office for a day working in the great outdoors, helping to add colour and interest to a much loved therapy garden in Glasgow. Carrying out a range of practical tasks including weeding, planting and turf laying, the 13 volunteers have helped to transform the garden in just a matter of hours.
The Rutherglen therapy garden is one of six being created through an innovative partnership project between Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT) and The Richmond Fellowship Scotland (TRFS).
The Chief Executive of Central Scotland Green Network Trust, Simon Rennie, has announced he will stand down from his position this autumn when he plans to retire. The trust was established in 2014, with Simon’s tenure spanning over 18 years including the charity’s prior operations as the Central Scotland Forest Trust.
Simon has planned his retiral for the end of August to allow an orderly and successful transition to the next chief executive while CSGNT continues to deliver its purpose during that time. The vacancy is scheduled to be advertised by the beginning of March.
RiverLife and CSGNT propose to rebuild the viewing platform overlooking Limefield Falls, this will be as part of the works to build a fish pass to allow iconic fish species to breed in the river again.
A planning consultation meeting will take place at Polbeth Village Hall on Friday 18th January, 4pm to 7pm.
