Pride of Place events

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

Award-win­ning en­vi­ron­men­tal group Pride of Place held a fundrais­ing cafe in the Y on Union Street in Coupar An­gus on Satur­day.

The cafe was or­gan­ised to co­in­cide with the com­mu­nity mar­ket in the town that day and saw a steady stream of cus­tomers keen to en­joy tea and cof­fee and home bak­ing.

Volunteers with the group were pleased with the suc­cess of the day, which raised £62, and thanked ev­ery­one who came along or do­nated home bak­ing for their sup­port.

The money raised will go to­wards the group’s on­go­ing ef­forts to en­sure that the town is look­ing its best for the judg­ing for the an­nual bloom com­pe­ti­tions this sum­mer.

The next fund-rais­ing event or­gan­ised by Pride of Place is their pop­u­lar an­nual plant sale, which takes place this Satur­day, May 27, in Coupar An­gus Town Hall.

A spokesper­son for the group said: “There will be a large number and a wide va­ri­ety of plants avail­able at the sale on Satur­day, many of which are the same as those we use in the hang­ing bas­kets, planters and flower and shrub beds around the town. The plant sale of­fers lo­cal res­i­dents a chance to buy a slice of colour for their gar­dens this sum­mer.

“We are very grate­ful to ev­ery­one who has do­nated plants for the sale and are look­ing for­ward to an­other busy but re­ward­ing event.”

The plant sale will take place be­tween 10am and noon.

Ad­mis­sion is £2 which in­cludes re­fresh­ments and home bak­ing.
