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!
