In the early hours of Friday 25th September there was a fire at the Shettleston Community Growing Project site at Eckford Street. We are sad to report that the fire caused considerable damage, destroying the Smelly Welly children’s hut and the potting shed, and badly damaging the poly tunnel. Work is underway to clear the debris and this will continue over the next couple of weeks . The cause of the fire is unknown at this stage and if anyone has any information that could help the Police with their enquiries, please call them on 101. There is more information on the fire on the project’s website www.shettlestongrowing.org.uk
