The efforts of some of Carnoustie’s green-fingered volunteers at the town’s railway station were recognised by ScotRail last week.

Members of environmental improvement group Colourful Carnoustie were last week invited to lunch at the Station Hotel by John Yellowlees, ScotRail’s external relations manager.

The small group of volunteers led by Sue McMahon, plant-up and care for all the floral planters at Carnoustie Railway Station throughout the year.

John said: “The Colourful Carnoustie volunteers do a fantastic job keeping the floral displays in great condition all year round for the benefit of not only local commuters but also passing Scotrail customers. We wanted to treat the group to lunch as a small thank-you for all their hard work and expertise.”

New timber planters have recently been made by the group to replace those ravaged by the weather and the feature platform steam train planter has been refurbished.

Sue said: “Colourful Carnoustie is involved in many projects throughout the town and the railway station is an important location for us.

“It’s good to have your efforts recognised now and again and we would like to thank John and Scotrail for their nice gesture.”

Colourful Carnoustie is responsible for a number of enhacenemt projects around the town, including the High Street hanging basket scheme.

Sponsoring a hanging basket for the summer costs £25 per basket, for details contact Kirsty MacDonald on 01241 853584 or Sue McMahon on 01241 852549.
