Basket success


MEMBERS of Carnoustie Community Council have thanked a local resident for making the town’s hanging baskets possible.

Mrs Sarah Paton has been allowing the community council use of her garden and greenhouse to make and plant the hanging baskets which are displayed in the centre of town.

And this week council members Kirsty MacDonald, Ed Oswald and Sue McMahon visited Mrs Paton to present her with a small gift as a token of appreciation.

Community council chairman Jim Simpson added: “Basically the project has been been a successful initiative supported at every stage by local volunteers and sponsors.

“Ross Smyth made a significant financial contribution and Austin Myers led an educational demonstration on how on plant the baskets and then worked alongside community council members to produce over 50 hanging baskets.

“Carnoustie Community Council very much hope that the baskets will be a colourful addition to town and will be enjoyed by local residents as well as visitors.”
