Bright ideas at Bon­hill

Lennox Herald - - NEWS -

More than 1000 daf­fodil bulbs have been planted at Bon­hill Church thanks to a team of green-fin­gered vol­un­teers.

Crowds of lo­cal peo­ple turned out on Satur­day to help plant hun­dreds of bulbs which will add a splash of yel­low to the church grave­yard.

Chil­dren and adults alike donned their gar­den­ing gloves and tools to help with the colour­ful project.

The plant­ing project was the idea of min­is­ter Bar­bara O’Don­nell, who joined the con­gre­ga­tion last year, and it has proved to be a big suc­cess.

This is the sec­ond year the burst of colour­ful flow­ers have been added to the church grounds, with over 1500 be­ing planted in Oc­to­ber last year.

Morag Kennedy of the Friends of Bon­hill helped serve well-earned tea and cakes to the vol­un­teers who went along to help.

She told the Len­nox Her­ald:“It was a great event last year and we got a good turnout so we were re­ally look­ing for­ward to invit­ing ev­ery­one along again. It was such a big suc­cess last year and the daf­fodils re­ally brighten up the place.”
