Meldrum Rotarians got their gardening gloves on last week, as they set about sprucing up the town’s William Forsyth Community Garden.

The garden, which was opened in September 2008 by Jim McColl, has become a popular spot in the town. It is maintained throughout the year by a team of Rotarians and volunteers.

Meldrum Rotarian Christine Falconer said: “We spent about an hour working on the garden this evening. Our herbaceous planting has worked out nicely, so there aren’t too many weeds to cope with at the moment.”

The garden takes its name from Oldmeldrum botanist William Forsyth, who became Chief Superintendent of George III’s palace gardens and helped establish the Royal Horticultural Society. Anyone interested in helping out in the garden should contact Christine on 01651 842494.
