A Frantic Friday

Some of the Friends of Hopetoun Crescent Garden committee receiving the “big payout cheque” on Friday from the local Co-op Store.

Great news too, the HCG is to be one of their good causes again for next year. Thanks to all Coop members for selecting us. Join up at the Macdonald Road Co-op.

The garden also had a visit from Edinburgh City gardeners. Lots of holes drilled and bulbs planted, here’s hoping for a bumper display of snowdrops and daffodils come the spring.

Also, during the week we’ve had a local primary school using the garden as an outdoor classroom on several occasions, helped out by committee Member Jenny Bruce. A close by nursery also had an hour in the garden, which the toddlers seemed to enjoy, running through the willow tunnel and jumping off the logs.

Great News!


More great news! We are very grateful to have been chosen as one of the Coop Community Local Good Causes for 21/22!
