As one of the first groups to gain a Waste Aware grant, we ran on our first ever eco-drama project. We asked a local playwright and a comedian to lead drama sessions for children aged 9-12. Over six weeks, they wrote their own play which we used as the central feature in an event to promote recycling. Over 200 people attended on the evening. They enjoyed the play, and visited the various stalls. A great success by all accounts.
GreenFerry members took part in a local mosaic project, to create a 50-foot mural for the town. This took a number of years, and has yet to find a site to show it off. It was originally destined for the library wall, but, once complete, it was decided that it deserved a better location. Word is that it will be positioned near the visitors’ centre on the site of the old motel, overlooking the Forth. Mosaics are a wonderful way of using up old tiles and coloured glass, and an excellent way to bring a community together. Well done to Mike and Gary from Common Ground Arts for initiating this.
