FLORAL Hanging baskets donated by Dobbies to the community of Carnoustie have been bringing colour to the streets since they were handed over in June.

Carnoustie Community Council approached shopkeepers and asked for permission to put up brackets and the shopkeepers have since maintained the baskets.

Community councillor Ed Oswald explained that the baskets were ready to be installed when they were delivered. He went on: “We will see if we can expand the area covered for next year and are hopeful that Dobbies might see their way to support us again.

“The baskets will probably be taken down about the end of this month and will be stored until the time comes for them to be filled with flowers and put up again next spring.”
