It's Your Neighbourhood

For the second year the Western has been assessed as "developing" in the campaign organised by Scotland in Bloom. We scored very well on planting, both of the herbaceous borders at the entrance and the sedum lairs in the upper portion of the cemetery.

Both walks were successful and those taking part contibuted quite a bit of new information. In particular we discovered the memorial to the former quarrymaster of Leoch quarry. The quarry was the source of stone for many of Scotland's major buildings such as the Usher Hall and, nearer to hand, the Mills Observatory.

Two new lairs have been planted with sedums and are doing well despite the foxes.
