The green-fingered folk from Colourful Carnoustie are looking for sponsors for this year’s hanging baskets for the High Street.

The volunteers have been hard at work to make sure the town is looking its best ahead of the summer and part of that is their popular floral street displays.

Ed Oswald from Colourful Carnoustie said: “The volunteers are working hard to make Carnoustie look its best again this year.

“Last year we won a Silver Gilt award in the Coastal Town section of the Keep Scotland Beautiful competition.

“Our hanging baskets and street planter displays help to make the town a bright, colourful and environmentally friendly place throughout the summer months.

“These displays have been funded entirely by Carnoustie businesses, organisations and local residents through hanging basket sponsorship, enabling us to provide the town with a vibrant display for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike.”

Colourful Carnoustie projects in recent years have also included the train planters at Carnoustie rail station, as well as at a number of other prominent places in the town.

Sponsoring a hanging basket for the summer costs £25 per basket.
