Green-fingered tenants in Inverurie

A group of tenants in Aquhorthies Circle, Inverurie, have been making progress on transforming a formerly disused piece of ground at their scheme.

Tenants asked if they could use the ground as a community garden and have been busy making improvements.   Castlehill have fitted a gate to the area, and tenants have been making in-roads by planting bulbs, sowing seeds and sprucing up the area.

There is a bug hotel for our smaller nature-lovers and several bird feeders to attract the local wildlife.

Some of the children who live at the development have been involved, and have received a certificate and packets of seeds to show our appreciation for all their hard work.

The garden is a work in progress, but there is a marked improvement already and residents’ plans are beginning to take shape.

If you live at Aquhorthies Circle and would like to be involved, even if you can only spare an hour now and again,  you can contact Catherine on 01224 628109 or catherine.coutts@castlehillha.co.uk, who will pass your details on to the group.
