Forehill Library at 31-33 Mt Oliphant Crescent is a hive of activity! Your local library is an ideal place to spend some time and is open to all ages 0-100! Why not check it out and try something new?

There are board games and jigsaws, a knit and natter group, a colouring book station and as colouring books are increasingly found to be a good source of therapy and relaxation- adults are catered for here too!

Tea and coffee is 50p a cup.
You can make use of the computers within the library, or you can take your own laptop and share the FREE wi-fi.

Congratulations to Cerys McCrindle

 

Huge Congratulations to Cerys McCrindle on her selection to represent Great Britain at the world downs swimming championships in Canada in July this year. Pictured with Cerys at her fundraising event is local Resident, event organiser and Cerys's VERY proud Gran, Nan McCrindle and Forehill, Holmston & Masonhill Community Councillors, Samantha Stewart, Sarah Gamble and Anne Miller.

The event raised a fantastic £1200 to help Cerys on her way and FHMCC was so pleased to help with a cheque for £100. We wish Cerys every success at the event and we can't wait to hear more about her wonderful journey.

 

 

 

Holmston Primary ‘Buddy Bench’

 

Holmston Primary ‘Buddy Bench’

 

FHMCC made a donation to Holmston Primary towards the cost of a ‘buddy bench’.

If a child is new to the school and hasnt had time to yet make friends, or perhaps is a bit shy at asking if they can join in a group or game, they take a seat on the buddy bench so classmates and other pupils can invite them to join in an activity or offer them some company.

It's a great way to help pupils be both involved and supportive-just as communities should be.

The cheque was received by Holmston Primary's Head boy and Head girl and our fund-raiser committee, Samantha, Sarah and Mary, would like to thank Head Teacher Mr. Hardie for the lovely welcome
