Our town centre is once again looking lovely, bright and colourful with our summer plants.
We’ve got even more planters arriving soon. We want the town to look fabulous its 400th Royal Burgh anniversary celebrations and of course for the Stranraer Oyster Festival.
Many thanks to our funders The Stafford Trust, Rotary Club, Glasgow Association of Galloway and Tesco Bags of Help. Also big thanks to Michael from Soleburn Garden Centre, Leswalt who supplied the plants and donated his time to plant them all.
Spring has sprung and our planters are full of spring flowers.
A big thank you to Tesco Bags of Help scheme and Tesco customer who voted for us!
We were fortunate to have won a £10,000 grant to install quality specially designed “self-watering” planters and plants around 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 Scotland in Stranraer have kept the planters watered and maintained. What a difference they have made to the town.
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 to extend the planting.
