Hilda and the CCTRA gave their thanks to all who helped with the project. She said: “We want to thank South La­nark­shire Coun­cil hous­ing ser­vices manager Tracey O’Don­nell, for al­low­ing us use the land to cre­ate the gar­den.

“Thanks to Pride of Place’s Anne Hop­kins-Simp­son and our lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tive John Edgar for fi­nan­cial sup­port and also Gerry Devaney for his ex­per­tise in as­sist­ing us with the lay­out of the gar­den and plants to at­tract but­ter­flies, etc.

“We ac­knowl­edge South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s com­mu­nity grants, who funded a lot of the fur­nish­ing in the gar­den.

“Thanks to the Com­mu­nity trade union’s Kath­leen Hunter, and the Cly­des­dale Bank for their gen­eros­ity.

“We were helped by the South La­nark­shire Coun­cil com­mu­nity pay­back teams, par­tic­u­larly both Hugh, Gra­ham and their teams for all the work they car­ried out.

“Last but not least, we want to thank the com­mit­tee who have worked so hard to­ward the com­ple­tion of this gar­den which we hope will be ap­pre­ci­ated by all the lo­cal com­mu­nity for many years to come.”

Mem­bers of the as­so­ci­a­tion were in at­ten­dance at the TIS (Ten­ants In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice) gala din­ner at the Crown Plaze Ho­tel in Glag­sow, as they were nom­i­nated for be­ing the best Ten­ants and Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion in Scot­land.

Un­for­tu­nately, the lo­cal group didn’t pick up the award, which was lifted by Gauchal­land East Ten­ants and Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion. Hilda added: “We are just a very small group but at least man­aged to get short­listed!”
