KEEN Ellon gardeners were recognised at a special ceremony on Friday night, after Ellon Community Council awarded the prizes for the annual community gardening competition.

The ceremony, at the Community Centre, saw the overall prize go to Mrs V Watson of McDonald Park, with Mrs Shewan of Tolquhon Place taking the runner-up prize. Among those commended were the Buchan Hotel, Ellon Civic Pride, Ellon Nursery and Primary School, and Glenythan Vet of the Square.

Speaking for Ellon Community Council, organiser Peter Brown said participants had enjoyed the evening.

“The evening went fine, with a decent turnout of 20-25 people,” he said. “The talk about the future of Castle Gardens was particularly well received. There were a lot of winners and commendations.”
