Remembering Together

An event to connect, to reflect and create

Saturday 18th May 2024, 11-3pm Bearsden Baptist Church

Remembering Together is about creating together, being part of a process to commemorate those who have lost their lives, and those who have experienced loss and change due to COVID. It is also about recognising and celebrating the ways in which Scottish communities have come together during the most difficult times.

In East Dunbartonshire, it was decided to install 12 new covered benches. Bearsden Baptist now hosts a bench in our Granary Garden. In partnership with Creatovators, ‘our bench’ shares the experiences of individuals and families impacted by autism.

On the 18th of May the partners will hold a community event to mark the installation of the new bench, and highlight the stories and music that was created to celebrate the work of Creatovators.

The event will run between 11-3pm and is open to all. Activities include; official opening and listening to the sound cloud, time to reflect and remember through planting and art, guided tours of the Roman site, BBQ, tea and coffee, outdoor activities for children and an opportunity to walk to Kilmardinny loch.
