GREEN-FINGERED volunteers had an ‘amazing’ time at a family-fun day to mark the end of a community garden regeneration project in Erskine. 

Following four weeks of work from the legion of locals, the area near Barwood Road has been restored to its former glory after years of decay. 

Led by the Erskine Community Garden committee members, the garden is set to provide a space for local youngsters to enjoy watching wildlife, learning about the environment and savouring some peace and quiet. 

The project has been widely supported by the community, with a host of businesses offering help during the regeneration. 

And to celebrate the landmark opening, committee members opened the garden’s doors for an afternoon of family-themed events such as face-painting and a scavenger hunt.

Heather Clissett, chairperson of the committee, said: “It has been a right community effort during the process.

“Saturday went really well and more people than we were expecting, due to the weather, came along to support us.”
