ROSEANNA WELCOMES PLANS FOR FURTHER IMPROVEMENTS AT OLD ST MICHAEL’S

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed plans by the Friends of Old St Michael’s to further improve the grounds of the former church in Crieff.

Ms Cunningham said:

“I was delighted to be invited to perform the official opening last year of the Memorial Garden at Old St Michael’s which is a splendid testament to community action and proof that people’s determination to improve their local environment can pay off. 

“After years of decline and neglect, it really was an absolute a delight to see the transformation that the Friends of St Michael’s had achieved in such a short time and so I am really pleased to hear of plans to develop the garden still further over the coming months.

“As well as further planting and more seating, the group have secured a Wild Harvest Pack from the Woodland Trust which will see a mix of trees such as hazel, blackthorn, crab apple, dog rose, elder and rowan planted as a hedge along the east wall of the churchyard.

“That scheme is one which might interest other community groups and schools across my constituency and the Woodland Trust are currently taking applications for trees to be delivered in November of this year.  Full information is available on their website.

“They have a range of different packs available to suit a variety of situations but the basic ambition is to give away hundreds of thousands of trees to schools and communities across the country.”
