Thanks to funding secured by board member Diane MacPherson and the design help of board members, volunteers and gardeners alike our garden is getting a much appreciated upgrade. The work carried out by our neighbour and gardener Abbie Thompson will change the layout of the garden space. Some of the improvements will include adding more planters, painting the walls, make and replace the door and a window on the glass dome, and add flowers and plants to make a sensory garden in Lochmaddy.
We also want to thank Calmac for gifting us one of their planters from outside the mart in Lochmaddy, George Leslie for moving the planter and John Macdonald all his help arranging this to be done and helping with the move.
This upgrade will run until next March when our garden should include new benches and planted plants, flowers and trees. We just wanted to share some of the photos of the work carried out so far!
Some other people we would like to thank are Ian and Gordan who are helping Abbie with the work, and the garden group for their help and suggestions composed of Catherine Macleod, Jean Archer, Ada Campbell, Gwen Evans, Diane MacPherson, Jessie Monroe, Joan Macdonald and Elaine Moloney.
