During the brief respite to lockdown in the summer of 2020, PCDYT gardening group, undertook a project to tidy up the public garden area at Old Station Court. This work was supported by topsoil from Jewsons Stranraer plants from Dumfries and Galloway Council. It was an opportunity for the gardening group to get some much needed exercise and bring a little cheer to this area. Loreburn Housing were delighted and have donated a voucher to the group t to be spent at Soleburn Garden Centre. – Very much looking forward to Spring 2021 and the easing of lockdown.
We were also were successful in obtaining funding for poly tunnels and raised beds to support the eco-committee at Portpatrick Primary School through the Coastal Communities Fund administered by D&G Council.
This project was put on hold by the School, following a complaint by a third party to D&G Council. This complaint was not upheld, however in the meantime the School’s priorities have changed, due Covid -19 and it is not yet clear if the project can go ahead.
