The Methlick Community Garden recently celebrated its 10th birthday by hosting a Macmillan Cancer Support coffee morning.

The Garden was bursting with colourful balloons and banners to mark the occasion on Saturday, September 26.

Visitors were able to walk around the grounds and admire the new features of the garden including new raised flower beds.

The garden portacabin has been recently transformed using timber donated by Scotframe Timber Engineering Limited of Inverurie

Scotframe managing director, Bob Edwards, said: “When Liz Allan on behalf of the community garden approached us looking for assistance we felt this was a very welcome and practical community project.

“Being able to provide sarking boards and battens to clad the portacabin made it a most worthwhile cause for us to support.”

Lord Aberdeen also attended the birthday celebrations at the garden and entertained visitors with anecdotes on the site’s journey from a quarry to a community garden.

Lord Aberdeen also thanked all the local businesses and individuals who donated materials and their time in order to ensure the garden is a nice place to visit.

Thanks were also given to the ladies who donated the home bakes for the event.

In total the birthday coffee morning managed to raise £275.84 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
