The green-fingered residents and staff in Commerce Street are continuing to impress people with their skills in the garden.

They received an assessment from ‘Its your neighbourhood, Keep Scotland Beautiful’. They were given the second highest grade “Thriving”, only 12 points away from Outstanding on their first assessment.

Service Manager Claire Gallagher and Handy Man Dennis Curran will receive an award in October at an awards ceremony in Stirling.

They also featured this month in Grass Roots the Royal Horticultural Society Community Update which published an article on the garden and in particular Denis and all his hard work. You can find this on the Turning Point Scotland Facebook page
