Volunteer gardener wantedjpg

 ... to plant and maintain one of the flower beds in Colliston Park.

If you are really keen on gardening, have some spare time, and would like to support our community, please contact Margaret Copp on 01556 610725.

If a volunteer cannot be found, then - sadly - one of the beds will have to be filled in.

Dalbeattie = Scots: Dawbeattie, from Gaelic Dail Bheithe meaning "valley of birch."
