Major facelift for wildlife area in Ballingarry

Ballingarry Tidy Towns group are making a great effort this year

Ballingarry Tidy Towns
We want to thank all who have been coming out to help with painting, picking weeds, litter picking, planting flowers etc.

The Wildlife Area is undergoing a major facelift at the moment and not before time. A planting plan of native perennial shrubs and flowers is now underway following a huge effort to clean up the site and the spreading of a lot of topsoil to fill all the holes so as to make the area safe.

Some new garden furniture has been added to enhance the site and make it more attractive for visitors.
All we ask is that you take away any litter that you create. This project is still a work in progress. But we have a lot of further jobs needing attention as we head into the Summer and we would appreciate any help you can give us whether it’s physical or financial – no special skills required.
