Grant success for Crook gardens

Volunteer power gets a boost –

Through last summer and autumn, Tuesday evenings saw volunteers working to tidy the extensive Community Gardens going from the A701 down to the Tweed.

This massive undertaking has received a great financial boost with a successful application to the Rural Communities Ideas into Action Fund.

Their generous support is enabling us to buy materials for paths to make the Gardens and meadow accessible; essential gardening equipment and secure storage containers; outdoor seating, planters and a hot composter for the whole community to use.
