The Glenkens Food Hub is a hyper-local, online, good food shop, connecting the producers directly to the people of the Glenkens. It's a place to buy nature and climate friendly food, for those who care about growing a healthier planet and people. Coordinated by a not-for-profit community interest company, Propagate. We are seeking to fill a gap in the community to give people better access to good local food, in an easy to use way, and to support producers who want to sell direct to you, the customer. All the produce on the hub is climate and nature friendly, for a healthier planet and healthier people. For more details on how and when to shop, please visit our website.
Many of you will have seen the wall hanging in Lagwyne Hall in Carsphairn. It represents a rich part of Carsphairn’s heritage in needle work and was created by women of the area together. Annikki Lindsay co-ordinated the piece to commemorate Carsphairn SWI’s 60th Anniversary in 1997. Its’ thirty five panels were done individually then brought together by Annikki to form the wall hanging you now see. We have been looking into the people and the stories behind each panel. By talking to people we have been able to identify a number of the panels and establish their creator however there are still panels which we are yet to learn about.

The purpose of this gathering of information is to put together a short pamphlet to accompany the wall hanging which reminds us now and in the future of the people and stories behind the panels.
If you can tell us anything about one or more of the numbered panels, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning Christine on 01644 460577.
