The Inner Wheel Club of Fraserburgh has shown its support for the Broch’s new ‘Secret Garden’ with a generous donation.

The group made a donation of £180 to support the project, which has seen a disused area of grass transformed into a community garden space.

Angie Christie, Social Regeneration Development Worker with the Here for You Project, was delighted to be given the opportunity to deliver a talk about Fraserburgh Secret Garden to members of the Inner Wheel Club recently.

Commenting, Inner Wheel president Irene McDonald thanked Angie for her presentation and commented: “It was most interesting and gave us an insight into ‘The Secret Garden’.

“I think you and all involved will be very proud of the work and time you have given when this venture reaches completion. I know I would be very interested to see it!”

Margaret Stalker, treasurer of the club, presented Angie Christie with a cheque for £180 recently. Angie thanked the group for their generous donation and said the money will go towards buying a number of wheelbarrows for use by volunteers.

The garden is situated in the area behind Alexandra Terrace, Lochpots Road and West Road and will feature a vegetable area, a sensory/herb area, fruit bushes and trees and flowers in various locations throughout the garden.

Work on developing paths and the garden layout is due to start imminently.
