Bulbs will help brighten park
Friends of Holmhills Wood Community Park have been awarded almost £600 from Pride of Place to plant 1000 bulbs.
The golden harvest daffodils, red and pink tulips will be placed around the entrances to the Community Park in Cambuslang.
The bulbs were recently planted by South Lanarkshire Council’s Land Services department on behalf of the Friends.
Michelle Farmer, chair of Friends of Holmhills Wood Community Park (a sub-group of Cambuslang Community Council) said:“We are very grateful to Pride of Place for this award.
“When the flowers bloom in spring they will provide a fabulous Easter display to welcome people to the park.
“We have had a fantastic year with so many improvements to the Park – clearing vegetation, improving paths, removing litter and rubble, cutting back trees and bushes, providing new bins, building a bug hotel and much more.”
Michelle says there has also been a big increase in people using the park.
“We have big plans for next year too, and having 1000 new plants coming into flower in spring will give us a blooming marvellous start,”she said.
