Bridgend inspiring growth through crisis and beyond
It has been an honour for the staff, trustees, and volunteers at Bridgend Farmhouse to serve the local community during the COVID-19 crisis.
Our efforts continue, and we are now working hard to plan our transition out of the lockdown restrictions in ways which respond to our new reality.
Some of activities will be the same, some adapted, some not yet possible.
Bridgend Farmhouse was here for the community before the current crisis, during the crisis, and we are going nowhere. We are here for the community beyond this crisis.
Over the past three months, we have loaned out 14 bikes to key workers, repaired countless people’s bikes, distributed around 75,000 meals, contacted dozens of our volunteers past and present, and held weekly online arts and crafts and singing workshops. Watch out for new activities around local history, our local environment, creative activities for the isolated (and bored!) and much more.
At present, we are only able to accept visitors on site by appointment. We will let you know here as soon as it is possible to take part in on-site activities or visit our cafe.
Staff are working from home, but you can contact us on 0131 564 0068 or by email via firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to.
If you have any ideas, or there is anything you need with which we can help, please tell us.
Bridgend Farmhouse is a community owned and run charitable organisation in south Edinburgh with a mission to ensure our now renovated farmhouse exists as a sustainable community-owned centre for learning, eating and exercise, where all can learn, work and grow together to develop a flourishing community and place.
