Port Glasgow Fun Day
Cost £ 6000
In partnership with the Upper Port Family group, the Charm Group are looking to hold a family fun day using Newark Primary School as a base, this will be great opportunity to bring the Port Glasgow Community together.
The fun day will include:
- Community BBQ (external company)
- Bouncy castle/inflatable
- Charm group to lead on arts and crafts for example clothing up-skilling and blankets for care homes
- Line dancing
- Face painting
- Music activities
This will help bring the community together both young and the older generation, there will also be opportunities for skills share for example sewing and embroidery. It will also hopefully encourage more community members to become part of the Charm Group and also attend the other groups such as the toddlers group and family group.
This is a partnership approach in which we will use local suppliers and encourage the community to come together to take part in a fun day. It will help improve the community feel good factor and provide families with a day that requires no cost which will reduce any barriers to access.

Comet Festival Parade
The Port Glasgow Festival is an annual event which takes place on June the 24th.

To enable as many people as possible to take part in the parade we would like to use the fund awarded to run workshops which would provide art work and banners to be used for the Parade. We would also like to run a music workshop for the youth of our community to enable them to bring music to the parade, providing an opportunity to learn new skills.
