A group of local volunteers are making progress on a project to start the preservation of Ellon Castle Gardens.
A company limited by guarantee with charitable status has been formed which will shortly acquire the gardens from Scotia and Barratts who have owned the garden since they purchased the land which is now under development at Castle Meadows.
The garden will be conserved in accordance with the requirements of Historic Scotland with the aim of eventually opening up to the public.
The initial six directors and trustees are now looking for more volunteers to join the board as the work begins.
They are particularly keen to hear from individuals with marketing, communications, fundraising, financial management, procurement, H & S, or construction experience.
