Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Fund­ing has been se­cured to make im­prove­ments to the Laigh Hills in Dun­blane.

About a mile of im­proved paths will be in­stalled along with new steps, seats, signs, fin­ger­posts and drainage.

Work, which is be­ing un­der­taken by teams from Stir­ling Coun­cil, got un­der­way this week thanks to cash from the Scot­tish Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme (SRDP).

In ad­di­tion to these im­prove­ments the Laigh Hills Park Master­plan Steer­ing Group are look­ing to plant 300 fruit trees in the first week­end of De­cem­ber thanks to cash from Tesco’s Bags of Help fund.

The fruit trees will in­clude a Scot­tish ap­ple col­lec­tion, a plum col­lec­tion, mod­ern ap­ples, a Scot­tish pear col­lec­tion, damsons and other fruits.

The group are ap­peal­ing for any­one keen to give a help­ing hand dur­ing the plant­ing of the trees to go along on Sun­day De­cem­ber 3.

Chil­dren must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult – and adults are en­cour­aged to bring along a spade and ham­mer.
