So much to be thankful for

Well what a couple of weeks TGB has had. We have had volunteers busy working away preparing and painting the new premises in the old bank. Our Shed project building has been put in its new home with local tradesmen doing a fabulous job all coordinated by men’s shed volunteers and then…..

Yesterday’s official announcement of the amazing funding we have received from YoungStart of over £86,000!!!

We will be able to expand on the work we do within our lovely wee town and also employ a much needed part time admin assistant (yipee).Thank you for your continued support

This weeks movie matinee…

Paris when it Sizzles runtime 1hr 46

Hotshot Hollywood screenwriter Richard Benson (William Holden) is in trouble. He sold a script idea to decadent producer Alexander Meyerheim (Noel Coward), but has wasted all the time he had to finish the screenplay by traipsing around Paris. With just a couple of days left before the deadline, Benson gets a new assistant named Gabrielle Simpson (Audrey Hepburn), who helps him put together a love story by acting out all the possible scenarios. But life eventually beginning to imitate art.

Come along and join us at Gatehouse community centre tomorrow (Friday), 1:30 for tea/coffee, movie begins at 2pm

All welcome

Ukers in fine tune 🎼

Lovely to pop In and see our super smiley faces of our Ukulele group. I just love how happy they all are, sitting strumming away together.

Thank you so much to Ian, Tracy and Tom for the time you put into sharing your skills with our community 🙌

Today’s Movie Matinee


John Cleese plays a school headmaster obsessed with punctuality whose best laid plans to attend a headmasters’ conference go wrong when he boards the wrong train. He turns back to find alternative means of transport, hijacking one of his pupils who is taking the afternoon off school in her father’s car. As the journey descends into further chaos, the head begins to lose his schoolmasterly poise.

Come along and join us for tea/coffee at 1:30,Movie will begin at 2pm.

All welcome, donations only

Feeling Grateful …

As a 3rd sector group we are very fortunate to have funders who support us both financially and through advice. One of the funders who have helped us massively through our journey is The Holywood Trust, today I’m at a fabulous wee lunch with the trust and other groups that the trust supports.
