Thin blue line seek ex­pert green fin­gers

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

It’s the thin green line of the law.

Po­lice Scot­land are look­ing for some­one who is a dab hand at Christ­mas wreath mak­ing and flower ar­rang­ing.

But it is not a job for Special Branch, as suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cants must have a SQA in the field of gar­den­ing.

The full-time £21,000-a-year civil­ian post is based at the Scot­tish Po­lice Col­lege in the grounds of his­toric Tu­lial­lan Cas­tle, Kin­car­dine.

As well as floristry skills and rais­ing pot­ted plants, green fin­gered can­di­dates must be ex­perts at sus­tain­able gar­den­ing.

They will have re­spon­si­b­lity for main­tain­ing the Force’s foot­ball pitches and en­sur­ing paths and roads through­out the ex­ten­sive park­land are kept free of snow and ice.
