Here’s a message from Jo Mercer about a plan to brighten up Borgue this summer. More details can be found on the ‘Operation Tub‘ page.
“No one will be surprised to hear that the Flower Show has been cancelled this year. However, an alternative activity has been suggested – ‘Operation Tub’. The idea is to plant up a tub (or tubs) and fill Borgue with flowers and plants. The tubs have kindly been sourced and half filled with well rotted compost and are available NOW from Sarah McCarthy in Borgue village.”
The Gatehouse Volunteers and Borgue community members have been clearing a lot of vegetation from the walls of the Iron Age fort at Castle Haven, near Kirkandrews. There was an initial session in January that removed most of the brambles, gorse and ivy from the inside walls. There will be a follow-up session on 19th February to clear the outer walls.
