Changing Rooms!

It was paint rollers and trowels at the ready this week when a lovely group from the Bank of Scotland Commercial Banking Services came to Ravelrig to work their magic.  It’s the third time some of the group had come and worked hard for us and this time the sun was shining for them.

Bank of Scotland work party in the garden

With a generous donation from the Bank they provided us with new hanging baskets, plants and bark for the play area.

They weeded, cleaned, pruned and painted in the sun with the gardens and stables looking spick and span.

Thank you to you all!

Open Day Preparations Days 1 & 2

On 26th & 27th May, Ravelrig was delighted to have help from yet more Bank of Scotland employees in the week before the Annual Open Day on 5th June!

Many thanks to Diane Curran and her colleagues from Teviot House, South Gyle, Edinburgh for clearing and painting stables and MANY other essential preparatory tasks! Your hard work set the pace for the rest of the week.

 

 

Garden Gang

Green fingered ladies from Bank of Scotland Commercial Client Services in Edinburgh had a great day on 19th May tidying up the Ravelrig RDA gardens and replanting the hanging baskets.

Daffodils were dead-headed and tied back, weeds were whipped out, shrubs were trimmed and baskets beautified!  What a difference – and the afternoon showers didn’t phase them at all.

Many thanks to Fiona Gagen, Hazel Paterson, Angela Smith, Gill Dalgleish, Dot McConnell, Ashley Erskine, Suzanne Hume and Donna Evans.
