Hillsare alivewith soundof revamp
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.
