Our Competition Winners

Luss Primary School

The children of Luss Primary sent us several photos of the school grounds that the children had taken themselves. The children wanted to make improvements to their picnic area in their playground during their Eco Week.

Kilfinan Community Forest

Kilfinan Community Forest had a Teddy Bear Picnic. They decided they would spend their prize money on fixing the picnic table and a wee shelter in case the rain resumes to "normal West coast" service!

Drumlemble Primary School

All the children from Pre 5 to P7 at Drumlemble Primary School were there for their Perfect Picnic! They went to Machrihanish beach and invited their mums and dads to come too. They made sandcastles, had a scavenger hunt and even dug for treasure! The children thought It would have been just lovely if it wasn’t so windy so decided on buying windbreaks with their prize money and then it would be perfect!

Artmap Argyll

A group of artists from Artmap Argyll braved the midgies and had a picnic in a favourite spot in the Blarbuie Woodland in Lochgilphead. The £100 prize will fund the installation of a series of bat boxes encouraging colonies of bats to inhabit the space and provide them with their very own Perfect (Midge) Picnic!

Star Bursts Toddlers

Star Bursts Toddlers love having fun on a Tuesday morning. With their prize money they plan to buy some baby toys & attract some new babies to their group and maybe get a new table so they don't have to clear away their play dough if they decide they want a picnic style snack!

Friends of Oban Community Play Park

Friends of Oban Community Playpark had their Perfect Picnic and were figuring out how to cheer up their old playpark. The old playpark was removed in February 2014. Friends of Oban put their prize towards compost for wooden planters to bring back some colour and life and encourage people to use it for picnics and fun!

Glenfinart Walled Garden

The sun was shining for Glenfinart Walled Garden who had a community picnic. Folk brought along their own delicious picnics and there was live music from an eclectic mix of folk to rock and traditional. Glenfinart Walled Garden are putting their prize money towards recycling bins.
