The Dollar Horticultural and Garden club is keen to do some work on the Dollar Memorial Garden to make it a more attractive place to be – but they’d like to know what you think before they do anything!
Clackmannanshire Council cut the grass and trim the shrubs but other than that, little appears to have been done over the past few years and it has become overgrown and quite depressing.
The Dollar Horticultural and Garden Club, with the blessing of Clackmannanshire Council and Dollar Community Council, and with support from the Development Trust, would like to rejuvenate the garden over the next 12 months.
Ideas to improve the space include clearing dead shrubs and plants, sprucing up the benches, planting new trees and shrubs, and improving accessibility (e.g. making the paths suitable for wheelchair users).
To do this, the club requires funding and they have come up with the idea of asking members of the community to buy a plant, from a specified list, in memory of a late Dollar resident. They would be discretely labeled with the person’s name, DoB and DoD.
The Horticultural club would really like some ideas from the Dollar community, so they encourage you to go and have a look at the garden and let them know your thoughts. You can do so by completing the short survey here.
