Penicuik YMCA successfully receives a Grow Wild grant.

Penicuik YMCA/YWCA has secured a grant of almost £5000 from Grow Wild.

The funding will be used to transform a neglected and overgrown piece of land adjacent to the building at Queensway to create an outdoor adventure play area, picnic area and sensory garden.

There are plans for a pond and herb garden.

A team of high school pupils will be involved in creating and maintaining the garden, along with local volunteers.

Y chairman Keith McIntosh said: “This project aims to create strong intergenerational links between local retired people and young people.”
