Community Pumpkin Feast Fri 28 Oct

Did you know that every year nearly 40 million pumpkins are bought in the UK, but only 22 million are actually eaten – the rest are thrown away after they’ve been carved. Now that’s a scarey thought!

This year we’ve teamed up with Hubbub to invite everyone in Biggar to share their pumpkin-based dishes at our community Pumpkin Feast. Just pop down to the Youth Project between 5 pm and 7:30 for an evening of fun and food! Fancy dress is optional, as is bringing your own pumpkin-based dish. There are plenty of tasty ideas on how to #EatYourPumpkin on the Hubbub website, so why not try a few out!

Traditionalists who prefer tumshies are welcome to bring neep-based dishes along instead!

High School ideas for building refurb

The design team from Fraser/Livingstone Architects recently visited BYP to get young people’s views on what they would like the building to be like.

The team worked with a group of High Graphics students to gather some design ideas. Space to relax and hang out with friends was a key ask, along with space to eat together. Pupils are keen on having more natural lighting, and homely neutral colours with natural materials to give a cosy feel.

Young people who use BYP were also asked for their views.

The Fraser/Livingstone team will feed the ideas into their designs for the building and will keep in touch with the school pupils during the design phase.
