Time is running out to register for a special day camp taking place later this month.

The Dandelion Day Camp, running from July 25-29, is a pilot project at the Cove Park welcoming up to 20 children aged eight to 12.

The week-long programme includes activities led by visual artist Laura Aldridge and writer Alison Irvine.

Youngsters will be able to take part in sculpture, food, and instrument-making with visual artist Hannah Brackston and sound and performance artist Siôn Parkinson.

Space is limited and registration closes on Sunday, July 2. Places will be confirmed by July 5.

Cove Park is also hosting an Unexpected Picnic next month, on August 6, from 1pm to 5pm.

Celebrating the Unexpected Gardens project, which has seen gardens created at Cove Sailing Club and Centre 81 in Garelochhead, the picnic will include food, music and activities for all ages. A number of artists involved with the gardens project will be taking part in the community picnic, sharing their work.

Food artist and culinary designer Rudy Kanhye will also provide "tasting experiences" and families can also bring their favourite dishes to share.

Home-grown produce and recipes are welcome with a recipe wall to showcase community favourites.

Both the picnic and day camp are organised by the Cove Park charity. Visit covepark.org to learn more.
