Superb Big Sunday!

Today's Big Sunday was a superb success and the WestFest organisers did a great job.   Hundreds of people were on Magdalen Green this afternoon and it highlighted the huge community spirit in the West End.

Those of us on the West End Sports and Heritage Association stall at Big Sunday had a great time publicising WESHA’s projects for improving sporting and environment projects in the West End and talking with many local residents about our plans for improvements in our area.

There’s a whole host of superb events during the WestFest week right across the West End and I have no doubt these will be well supported by local people!

Here's a short video taken just before the start of Big Sunday:

Elaine Kuwahara is the owner of the former home of James McIntosh Patrick on Magdalen Yard Road and she kindly opened her garden today as part of Scotland's Gardens Scheme, with all proceeds to charity.   Hugely well attended and adjacent to Big Sunday, visitors could see the lovely way Elaine has restored the beautiful gardens.
