Milngavie In Bloom
Bringing colour to the town of Milngavie
Thank you for visiting our website. I hope you enjoy reading about and seeing some of the work carried out by our happy band of volunteers. If you are inspired please come and join us. Don’t worry if you’re inexperienced or only have a little time to spare. We’ll be delighted to see you.
When I retired I felt I still had something to offer to the community of Milngavie where my family and I have enjoyed living for the last thirty years. Volunteering seemed to fit the bill and I joined Milngavie in Bloom, initially, to help dig over beds. Later, I was persuaded to join the committee and I became Chairman in 2013.
In my working life, as a surveyor, I always had an interest in the environment, both built and natural. Our actions, on a daily basis, have an influence on our environment. We can all make a difference to our environment through small changes in our behaviour.
I’ve probably met and got to know more residents over the last five years, as Chair, than in the previous twenty five years. I love having a garden at home, small though it is, and now I have gardens throughout Milngavie. As a grandfather I would like to leave something that my grandchildren and future generations in Milngavie can appreciate and enjoy.
Chair, Milngavie in Bloom.
