Work on the new Playpark for the two villages is nearing completion, with the final elements in relation to signage, safety matting, grass seeding and so on currently being undertaken.
A formal opening day event is now planned for the 1st of September, which will include fun and entertainment for all ages and the whole community, including a barbeque, bouncy castle and more.
Given the effort being put in to getting both the park and the launch, Keose Glebe Estate have decided not to run its own ‘community day’ this summer, but will instead assist with, and contribute to, the Community Association event.
A great deal of local volunteer effort has gone in to getting the park up and running, and this will be a fantastic resource for the children in the community.
We are again looking to award a prize for the village croft and village garden of the year. Both categories will be decided on by an independent referee towards the end of August. 11 Keose Glebe were worthy and double winners last year…Who will be victorious this time around????
Today with North Lochs Historical Society walked Keose Glebe, a #LandReform estate where the community have set up picnic tables.

Running a (Community) estate takes some effort – administrative and practical; and each time we take on a new project, a little more of each is required. In addition, periodic maintenance is then necessary to ensure that everything is kept at the desired level and quality.
This means that, here in Keose Glebe, voluntary effort is required to, for example, cut grass, clean and bail boats, check moorings, paint walls, dig and replant flowerbeds, check trees, kill weeds, mend roads, clean offices; service vehicles and equipment, and more.
