Folk in the Garden 2017





Stretch Tent

Girvan Community Garden has received funding from Ayrshire Leader to purchase a new waterproof tented cover for use during events. The tent is a Stretch tent and can be used in many different ways. Our team of volunteers gave it an initial pitch at the Harvest Festival and it provided some much needed shelter on what was a very cold day.



Garden Cabin Extension
Girvan Community Garden has received funding from Tesco Groundworks, South Carrick Health & Social Care Partnership and South Ayrshire Charitable Trust to build an extension onto the existing cabin and install LED lighting around the garden. Work has started and will be completed by the Easter weekend in time for the start of our summer events. We'd like to thank the funders for giving us the opportunity to further develop the amenities of the garden. We'd also like to thank James Cadle and Josh Russell for donating their time on the electrical work element of the project. Josh is a self-employed electrician and can be contacted through



10th Anniversary

New and old friends and volunteers celebrated the gardens 10th Anniversary on the 24th of June. We were delighted to see everyone having a great afternoon. Guests were treated to a wonderful buffet feast, cake, complimentary drink and music.

Certificates of appreciation were given to our longest volunteers, Audrey Riddell and Ward Higgins. To mark our 10th anniversary we launched a new logo competition involving 3rd year Girvan Academy pupils. Rachel Roxburgh was our winner and she received a £50 voucher for art materials. Thanks goes to Alec Clark and Etta Auld for their kind words. Later on the garden opened up to the public. We were humbled by the amazing comments that everyone had about the garden and how it has developed over the years. Thanks also go to those who sent cards and gave us donations. Some people couldn't make it to the party but you were all in our thoughts while we raised a glass of bubbly!
