Digging in for Brownies’ big birthday

A total of 1,000 daffodil bulbs have been planted in Cove to mark next year’s centenary of the Brownie movement.

Brownies, guides and their parents were joined by volunteers across the community to help plant the bulbs at the Brownie Park opposite the village fire station on Sunday.

The Rosneath Peninsula West Community Development Trust is co-ordinating the project after the Rosneath Peninsula Amenity Society bought the bulbs.

“In the new year we will hopefully get the Guides, Brownies and their parents back to clear up the foreshore,” said Ann Bray of the amenity society.

Cove and Kilcreggan Community Council agreed last month to donate £100 for maintenance work next year on the site, which is owned by the Cove and Kilcreggan Trust.

At the development trust’s AGM last week Mrs Bray said knotweed in other parts of the foreshore was continuing to be treated, but there would not be any money to pay for it to be sprayed now that the wind farm plans had been withdrawn.

“One positive is that there have been definite moves by some householders to improve the foreshore in front of their homes,” she added.
