‘Brew and A Blether’ is a new project set up by Glentrool and Bargrennan Community Trust in partnership with the Riverside Day Centre in Newton Stewart and Building Healthy Communities.
With the help of a grant from the NHS Day Opportunities fund, the Trust is hosting a series of monthly events where Glentrool and Bargrennan residents can join members of the Riverside for an afternoon of entertainment and activities in Glentrool Community Centre. ‘The Brew’ is nothing stronger than tea or coffee, since making your own beer is not one of the activities on the programme to date (at least not so far). The first event on 17 was a great success with forty-eight members and staff from the Riverside arriving by coach to be joined by a number of Glentrool residents for an hour of music in the capable hands of Ray Hitchcock.
A programme for the first three months of 2015 is now being finalised and if all goes according to plan Glentrool will be hosting a ‘Brew and a Blether’ on a monthly basis throughout the year.
