As the seasons change from Winter to Spring we can again see the very obvious presence the Auchterarder Bloom Association has in the town. Planters are beginning to bloom and splashes of colour are appearing all about the town. The next proposed project is rather larger than a planter or hanging basket and the association are asking for help from the local community to make it possible.
No you don’t have to get on your gardening gloves, although I am sure they would be happy to welcome anyone who would like to join them. This help is an email or letter of support to help the association with their newest plans.
Please read the letter below and take a few minutes to show your support.
The Auchterarder Bloom Association have worked tirelessly over the last 6/7 years to bring colour throughout the town by planting up containers and hanging baskets. However, our beautiful town is still missing something and our Chairman, Judy Pirie decided that the corner next to Lloyds Pharmacy could be turned into a town centre area.
Over the last 18 months we have been working with PKC and Take a ride in Perthshire to see if we could re-landscape the area, so that it becomes a focal centre for the town. We have plans drawn up to alter the layout so that there will be a seating area for the young and old when the sun shines. There will be a beautiful wall, sustainable planting and uplights and a pathway. It will be known as Garries corner after Mr Garrie who was a past provost and prominent local businessman whose business was at this corner.
To achieve these ambitions, we require LETTERS OF SUPPORT to allow us to raise funds from various community resources. Therefore, we ask that you assist the Auchterarder Bloom Association’s fundraising efforts by writing a letter of support for our project. The more letters we receive, the more likely we are to achieve beautiful surroundings for the town of Auchterarder.
If you would like to show your support for this exciting new project please email firstname.lastname@example.org or send your letter to John Boyd, Treasurer, Auchterarder Bloom Association, 21 Grampian Avenue, Auchterarder, PH31NY.
