South Kintyre Development Trust (SKDT) is seeking volunteers to help a local group start beautifying parts of the town that have been slightly neglected over the past few months.

At the moment plans are focused on further developing the Gateway Garden at Aqualibrium Avenue to make it look more appealing and more accessible to the local community.

In the next few months the group plans to identify more areas which are in need of improvement. This will feed into a larger plan to start a community growing scheme which is in the early days of development.

Eric Spence, SKDT manager, said: ‘If you are interested in growing or are prepared to help out with landscaping, planting, weeding and so on, we would like to hear from you. We will provide any tools or safety equipment required and with ensure that social distancing and other public health measures are observed.’

For more information or to volunteer, contact Eric by emailing or telephoning 01586 552870.
