Kindhearted volunteers went along to the Spinal Injuries Centre at Clober Farm in Milngavie recently to give their garden some much-needed TLC.

The specially adapted property, which is run by the charity Spinal Injuries Scotland, can be rented by wheelchair users.

The garden was designed and created with help from the Beechgrove Garden team two years ago but since then it’s been a bit neglected.

So staff member, Marianne Prentice, spoke to Milngavie in Bloom to ask if they could help them out.

Clare Byrne from Spinal Injuries Scotland, said: “Up stepped Heather Lindsay, Elaine Shearer and Betty Black. They spent the day with us and the garden looks a million dollars now! Not only did they work hard themselves, they also delegated tasks to volunteers including locals Larry and Pam Cheyne as well as some of the Spinal Injuries Scotland volunteers, directors and staff.

“A huge thanks to all the helpers - the hard work paid off and the place looks fabulous again, ready for the next guests to get out there and enjoy it.”
