Each year they organise a litter pick as part of ‘Keep Scotland Beautiful’.
The volunteers also get together every November to plant bulbs at selected sites and in May to plant 50 hanging baskets to decorate the Town Centre. Individuals also plant the displays outside the Town Hall.
The Bonnie Banchory Project has been formed under the umbrella of BDI to enhance and extend the floral decorations in Banchory Town Centre and other focal points around the town. The Team believes that a more attractive town will bring many benefits and the project has received widespread support from a range of businesses, community groups and individuals.
Team members are: Karen Clark (Aberdeenshire Councillor); Norma Makin (Banchory Horticultural Society); Margaret Paterson (BDI); Jane Russell and Cecilia Rogers (Secretary of Banchory Horticultural Society).
If you would like to help, we would like to hear from you. We need green fingers for planting and maintenance, people with large capacity vehicles to transport planted baskets and tubs, greenhouses to bring on plants; sponsors for tubs and baskets; and donations towards the purchase of additional baskets, plants, bulbs, tubs and compost. If you can do any of these you will automatically qualify to become a Friend of Bonnie Banchory.
