Autumn at Riverview

We partnered up with the guys from the Recycle Team at this month's Community Living Room down at Riverview.

We had a very interesting talk from Paul, looking at how trees in the past have been used on a every day basis. For example, oak trees during the 17th and 18th century were used  for ship building; parts of cherry trees and the silver birch were used for medicinal purposes i.e. a cure for pains relating to gall stones and stomach problems.

The group also had a opportunity to make a bird feeder with pine cones.

The next Community Living Room is on Tuesday 6 November 12.30pm prompt. All welcome. The activity next month will be Christmas card making with reusable materials.
