Volunteers from Forfar in Flower have completed their biggest project to date by tidying up a prominent gateway feature at the edge of town.

Several tons of gravel, 15 tons of rocks and 700 heathers have helped to create the attractive landscaped feature on the Glamis Road roundabout.

Situated next to the A90, the roundabout is one of the first things visitors see when they turn off the dual carriageway towards the town.

Lynne Devine, convener, said: “It was a bigger project than we thought - it doesn’t look so big when you’re just driving past it.

“We started ages ago but the weather got the better of us, then we couldn’t get the lorry on to the roundabout and get started with the plants.

“This has been the biggest project yet that we have tackled and we’re so grateful for all the help received from local companies.”

Help came from main sponsor Gordon Phillip of AM Phillip, Strathmore Specialist Landscaping, Stonepak, Laird Bros and Travis Perkins which provided transport, Geddes which provided the rocks and Don and Low which supplied the membrane to cover the whole roundabout.
