A big congratulations to one of our SVQ Horticulture Level 1 students, Sandra, who earned a trophy for her vegetables at the South Uist Agricultural Show. Well done!
Our new van has had it's stickers put on and is looking great. It's sporting the new ReStore logo and has been updated with our social media handles, which is a great way of checking what furniture we have in store.
The van has been in duty for several weeks already, but now it will be much easier to recognise when it's on the road making collections and deliveries.
Yesterday we took it to our open day at Falachan Cothrom. Not only did it help us get much of the equipment we needed down there, but it also looked great in the sunshine.
We had a fantastic day out at Falachan Cothrom. The garden is looking great thanks to everyone who came to help, and our visitors (including the nursery children) all enjoyed the sunshine.
On Wednesday 4th July we are hosting an open day at St Peter's Walled Garden in Daliburgh. Join us anytime between 10:30 and 14:30 to enjoy our garden and a nice cuppa.
Over the summer period ReStore will be open on Saturdays. We hope this will allow those who can't make it in during our usual open hours a chance to browse our stock. Welcome!
