Earlier this year we were successful in receiving £10,000 from the Tesco Bags of Help scheme to purchase specially designed “self watering” planters for the town centre.
The funds also paid for compost and plants to create a range of floral enhancements around the town. Members of the Board and volunteers from Apex in Stranraer have kept the planters watered and maintained. What a difference they have made to the town. A big thanks to Tesco and to the Tesco customers who voted for our project. We will continue to maintain the planters and will be planting spring bulbs once the summer bedding has finished. We plan to look for further funding to purchase more planters for next year.
