An award-winning community group is hoping to bolster its coffers through the Tele’s Community Chest competition.
Broughty Ferry In Bloom has hosted gardening projects including the planters and hanging baskets on Brook Street, Fisher Street and Windmill Gardens.
Joan Chalmers, secretary of the group, said: “We have been going for more than 10 years now.
“For the last eight years we have won a Silver Gilt medal in the Keep Scotland Beautiful competition.”
The group meets informally at Duntrune Community Garden on Tuesday mornings between 10am-noon to work on tasks and plan ahead for the year.
It also meets in Broughty Ferry Library on the second Tuesday of the month at 7pm and meetings are open to all.
Joan said: “We have got about eight active volunteers but we’ve got more members than that.
“The group is well known in the area and also takes part in litter picks and works alongside the various nurseries in the area and Grove Academy.”
She added: “We have to do all our own fundraising. Plants are expensive.”
If the group was successful in collecting more than 50 tokens, Joan said the money would go towards plants as well as more hanging baskets.
She said that a lot of the baskets that it has are not suitable to go up because they require a particular type of bracket.
She said: “There is always something that we need some money for.”
She added that money could also go towards high visibility vests for youngsters to wear when they are with the group as well as on miniature gardening tools for them to use.
Joan said: “We always need more gardening tools. We are bringing stuff from our own gardens to use.”
Joan said people have been very generous towards the group for its ribbon of poppies appeal, and added: “Hopefully they will be generous with tokens for us too.
“We’ll see what we can do.”
For your chance to win some cash for your community group all you need to do is collect at least 50 tokens by Saturday July 28.
