The final week of PEP’s summer programme of events included a Trip to Falkirk, the last of the craft classes and a summer party at the Queensberry Bowling Club.

The weather in Falkirk couldn’t have been better; it was a lovely warm day with plenty of sunshine. It was perfect for sitting outside in the clean and safe precinct area after a nice session browsing around the shops. Everyone enjoyed the packed lunches and made the most of a relaxing afternoon.

The final craft class was busy with avid jewellery makers skilfully creating an array of necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The colours and designs were inspired with the participants using beads, copper wire and buttons to make their little works of art. The group has worked so hard over the last 4 weeks and the items created have been fantastic. Well done to them all.

The final event of the summer programme for 2017 was the ever popular Summer Party at the Queensberry Bowling Club. The room was packed as the staff and volunteers dished out a delicious summer salad to the party goers. This year the music was provided by Graham and he had everyone up on the dance floor. Even the staff joined in with Helen and Frances stunning everyone with their ‘rockin and rollin’ and Ray enjoying his dances with the ladies!

The raffle had some great prizes including a bottle of Prosecco kindly donated by the bar staff and 2 well stocked food hampers. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day with comments of ‘best ever’ echoing around the hall.

As always we would like to say a huge thank you to the Queensberry Bowling Club for providing the venue and bar facilities and for making us feel so welcome. Thank you also to all the staff and volunteers for their hard work setting up and making the event run so smoothly and to Graham for keeping everyone so well entertained.

It was a fantastic end to this year’s summer programme.

This year the party at the Queensberry Bowling Club fell on the 22nd December. Moira and volunteers Peter and Stephen did a fabulous job of decorating the tables. The decorations included luscious poinsettias donated by Pentland Plants and gifts on the tables for everyone from ‘Lindsay and Gilmour Pharmacy’.


60 people came along for the event with delicious food, as always, prepared by PEP’s dedicated staff and volunteers. Pate and oatcakes were followed by turkey with all the trimmings and a shortbread and fruit dessert.


This year’s entertainment was provided by Graham who put on a disco with a bit of singing thrown in. There was even a conga line snaking through the hall! The raffle had tonnes of prizes on offer including wine, chocolates and gift sets. The large poinsettias were also highly desirable this year! There were five large food hampers again donated by our friends at Liberton Hospital. With additional donations from ‘McKenzie & Millar’ and ‘Morrison’s Ferry Road’, it meant that there were plenty of opportunities to go home with an extra gift!


A special thank you must go out to the volunteers from ‘Heineken UK’ who came along specially to help out on the day. Thank you to Graham for the music, the Queensberry Bowling Club for hosting us and providing the bar facilities, to the staff and volunteers for making the day happen and to everyone who came along…. ‘Merry Christmas’!

The final week of the summer programme saw visits to Stirling and Dunfermline, the final craft class and the big party at the Queensberry Bowling Club.


The buses arrived in Stirling passing the magnificent castle, with views of the highland cattle in the field below adding to the lovely scene. They were dropped off in the town centre, where everyone dispersed and headed for a cup of tea and a browse around the shops. Within the shopping centre itself, there was a display of owls which visitors could handle, pet and photograph. The weather stayed fine during the visit and many bargains were purchased in the local charity shops!


The final craft class enabled the participants to finish off their works of art in denim and felt, and for some, to start mini projects using jeans pockets as their inspiration. In this session, there were cows in their barns, houses, flowers and lovely abstract designs. This week’s home-made baking delight was a fabulous, rich chocolate cake! The craft class this year has been a great success and our thanks goes out to all the participants and to everyone who donated items for the ‘Upcycling’ crafts.


62 people were able to come along and enjoy the ever popular summer party at the Queensberry Bowling Club. The delicious summer salad was prepared diligently by staff and volunteers before being served to the party goers. There was music from Pat with dancing and singing from all the people who attended; including some fabulous Gaelic verse. Manager Helen also drew the raffle with prizes of wine, chocolate, plants and food hampers.


A huge thank you to the Queensberry Bowling club for providing the venue and bar facilities and for making us feel so welcome. Thank you also to all the staff and volunteers for their hard work and to Pat for providing the music and keeping us all entertained throughout the afternoon.

The final summer programme outing to historic Dunfermline was packed. Whilst most trip goers headed to the fantastic shopping centre with its wide variety of shops and cafes, some took the chance of fantastic weather to visit the 11th Century Dunfermline Palace and Abbey. As with Stirling; the owls were there again at the shopping centre giving people the chance to hold and stroke the lovely birds.Craft ClassParty SingingParty winnerDunfermline
