Pride of Place events
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.
