Nonna’s Sponsor Blog 2019


Nonna’s Kitchen, translated as “Grandmother’s Kitchen” in English, have once again demonstrated their commitment and gratitude to the community of Lenzie by sponsoring the 40th community gala day, GalaFest 2019. 

When you think of Nonna’s, or grandmothers for that matter, both recall a warm, caring and loving environment which create a feeling of nostalgia and where great food, company and laughter come together to create wonderful memories that will stand the test of time. It is fitting that Nonna’s Kitchen are supporting us in our 40th year as we reminisce on the history of the Gala Day and what it has meant to the community over the years. Much like our own Grandmother’s (and Grandfathers) who have also contributed to making this day a great success since 1979. 

This valued sponsorship contributes to a wonderful day for all the community and reflects the team at Nonna’s who want to help us to enjoy it for many more generations to come. 

Lynne Jhangeer, Sponsorship Team Leader, had this to say: 

‘When the team at Nonna’s confirmed that they would be able to support the 40th Lenzie Community Gala Day I was ecstatic. As a business with an extensive customer base of Lenzie residents it reinforced why so many local people, including myself, choose to support them. As a valued Friend of Lenzie GalaFest we cannot thank Nonna’s Kitchen and their team enough for helping us to secure and stage Lenzie community Gala day’s 40th celebrations, Galafest, this year. Without businesses like Nonna’s and the individuals within them then we would not be able to host this great community event.” 

Established in 2013 Nonna’s Kitchen you can expect traditional Italian dishes just like our Nonna’s use to cook with a slight modern twist. Within the tranquil surroundings of Kirkintilloch’s canal you’ll find our brand new restaurant, where you can enjoy exceptional authentic Italian cuisine. Everything from mouth-watering pizzas and pastas to tantalising steaks and seafood is cooked to perfection, Nonna’s way. 

Fraser Craig, Company Director at Nonna’s said: “The team at Nonna’s really value our community, customers and groups like GalaFest who are trying to make a difference. We are delighted to be on board and know that it will be a great success”. 

Lenzie GalaFest will be held at Lenzie Rugby Club on 24th August 2019. The procession will leave from Lenzie train station at 12pm and the event will run until 4pm.
