Reid Hall in Forfar will host the Beautiful Angus networking event tomorrow (Wednesday, March 30)

As well as providing a chance for community-spirited and green-fingered groups and people of all ages to get together, the event will be the launch pad for this year’s Beautiful Angus Garden Competition.

Categories this year are for Primary Schools and Nurseries, which launched just before Christmas; and Angus Council Tenants and Licensed Premises, which will both be set in motion by Communities vice-convener, councillor Jeanette Gaul.

Winners and runners-up will also be heralded for each of the Angus burghs and an overall competition winner declared at an event later this year.

The free drop-in Beautiful Angus event is being held from 3 to 7pm.

Stalls/tables will be available for groups to showcase their work and hear about the successes of other groups in Angus.

Anyone who is involved or interested in a community planting, environmental or in-bloom group, or who has an interest in making a positive impact where they live is welcome.

You can meet up with Angus Council’s communities team, and the external funding team, as well as the parks and ranger service and the Tayside Biodiversity Partnership.

Murton Trust will also be represented, along with Keep Scotland Beautiful, local men’s shed groups, as well as Food is Free Carnoustie and community groups from East Haven and Forfar.

Catherine Lloyd from the Tayside Biodiversity Partnership will give talks at 4 and 6pm.
