To make our charming village of Braemar into a 'blooming' array of colour and joy!

We would like to purchase additional benches to be dotted around the village so locals and visitors alike can enjoy the flowers and the surrounding beauty of Braemar and the hills.


After a challenging year we (Sarah Hubbard & Ros Evans) thought we needed to uplift peoples spirits within our wonderful community, and what better way than through the beauty of flowers!

We also want to be ready to welcome back the many visitors that come to Braemar and the surrounding area to walk and immerse themselves in the beautiful surroundings either on a day trip or for their holidays. 

Our aim with the donations is to purchase an evergreen shrub for the centrepiece for each large tub to then be surrounded by colourful bedding plants. Flowers will fill the existing tubs and buy new hanging baskets to be carefully placed throughout the village.  A selection of bulbs will also be bought so the colour would start earlier each year!

We are both involved in the Braemar Tourism Group and have taken on the role of 'pots & plants' coordinators from the Braemar Community Council. Many of the local businesses are already on board with their membership and as part of this this year we would like them to 'adopt' a pot! This will be given to them and all we ask is that they love it like part of the family!!

There is already a team of volunteers that help with the planting of the tubs as well as those working in the Community Garden, so we are well on target help wise.

We are also keen to buy waterproof materials to make bunting to festoon around the village for year round 'prettiness'!

We really do hope you share our vision and 'dig' deep! any amount will be gratefully received :)

Many thanks Ros & Sarah x
