Fort Wil­liam

The Oban Times - - Districts -

FORT Wil­liam Town Team vol­un­teers have been tidy­ing up the Pa­rade.

The sun­dial gar­den has been re-land­scaped with sturdy paving to al­low wheel­chair-friendly ac­cess.

Vol­un­teers put the fin­ish­ing touches to the gar­den by plant­ing or­ange, yel­low and white be­go­nias.

The project was a huge suc­cess thanks to con­trac­tor Eck Bruin, Cal­lum Boyd of Boyd Bros (who do­nated the top­soil), Gar­denS­top (which ar­ranged de­liv­ery of the plants), James Kennedy for sourc­ing and put­ting in the top­soil and Nor­rie McLean for over­see­ing the land­scap­ing.

Vol­un­teer James Kennedy has also been busy paint­ing 10 benches and seven flower bar­rels around the town in the past cou­ple of weeks.

Gear­ing up for sum­mer, all the hang­ing bas­kets have been put up in the High Street and all the Adopt a Plots planted.

Lun­davra Pri­mary School pupils and their teacher braved the Fort Wil­liam rain to plant up Madame But­ter­fly, their adopted plot, again this year.

As part of the Tesco’s Bags for Help do­na­tion, the team is buy­ing new planters for the High Street and would like to plant th­ese with dif­fer­ent types of small trees.

The group is look­ing for sug­ges­tions from the com­mu­nity on what types of trees might be hardy enough to sur­vive the Fort Wil­liam weather.

If you have any ideas, post them on the group’s Face­book page.
