It's been a busy few weeks at the Project! I've been up North working with Primary Schools in Sutherland and twinning them with schools in the South. Philip's been delivering the first round of Eagle School sessions. We all had a lovely day at Yarrow & Ettrick Show and I had a great afternoon over at Glenlude at the John Muir site on Thursday with the lovely Karen Purvis and her wonderful volunteers. It's busy but it's all good stuff!
