Fingers crossed

MILNGAVIE in Bloom still awaits the results of Beautiful Scotland’s ‘Scotland in Bloom’ competition.

In the meantime they’d like to thank all the volunteers who helped to beautify and clean up Milngavie for its inspection on Tuesday, August 9, by judges from Beautiful Scotland.

Thelma Will, vice chair of Milngavie in Bloom, said: “Our helpers pulled out all the stops and made the village beautiful. The sun shone on the day, and we were very proud of our village as we walked round with the judges.”
