Antonine Community Field Consultation

A very successful consultation event was held on 6 May in the field behind Gavinburn school in Old Kilpatrick. AOK and the Forestry Commission Scotland invited residents of Old Kilpatrick to suggest ideas for the field that had been given to the community by the Forestry Commission. Over 100 people attended on the day and enjoyed wood craft, willow weaving, story telling and talking to us about what we could do with the field. 

One of the most popular ideas was to make raised beds or small growing areas for the community to use. An orchard, wildflower meadow and willow weaving area were also very popular. 

A working group will now be formed to go over all ideas suggested and come up with a plan for the project. A meeting will be set up for all interested residents where the ideas will be discussed. We want to involve as many residents as possible so if you'd like to help, please get in touch. We will be publishing the details of the first working group meeting soon.
