Macara Park Play Equipment Opening: What a wonderful day!

 DSC_1857The Trustees and Staff of Moniaive Initiative would like to thank everyone who helped to make our Playground Opening yesterday such a success. We had a generaous supply of volunteers who helped prepare the park in the morning (including the wonderful bike circuit); those who provided water and electricity for our catering; donations of chocolate and other goodies for prizes; the School for loaning us sports equipment; Playcare, the Institute and the Craigdarroch for loaning catering equipment; The Gala crew and other volunteers who helped organise races and games; and those who stayed to clear up afterwards….and finally, thanks to everyone who turned up to share the day with us!

Spring Clean in Moniaive

Moniaive Initiative will be joining with members of the local community to carry out a quick Spring Clean from 11am on Sunday 18th March 2017, as part of the Great British Spring Clean.

We aim to litter-pick Macara Park with families, and hope to get the Park looking clean and tidy in readiness for the Official Opening of the new children’s Play Equipment on Sunday 25th March 2017.  If we have enough volunteers, we would also like to litter-pick the path from the School to the Bottom Park.

Other volunteers will litter-pick the road verges within the 30mph zone of Moniaive.

Volunteers need to come warmly dressed.  Rubber gloves and high-vis jackets would be useful, if you have them.  We will provide the bin bags and litter-picking sticks.

We will also be providing hot refreshments for volunteers in the Glencairn Memorial Institute from 11.30am onwards.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
