HAPPY PLANTERS: Willowbank plant sale

Willowbank Centre near Peterhead is gearing up for annual plant sale this Saturday (May 26).

Service users have been making garden furniture, taking care of the plants, baking, making Glendaveny Bears, jams and chutneys to be sold at the popular event.

All the furniture is made and painted by those at Willowbank who take great pride and care in their work.

Deputy manager Jean McBride said: “Everyone has been really busy and worked extremely hard. It’s always a really busy time as everyone is getting keyed up for the plant sale.”

There will be various stalls with tombola and raffles and local people selling their own produce. The sale is being held from 9am until 2pm and there will also be a car boot sale beside Willowbank.

Anyone wishing to come along can pay a fee of £7 per car. A selection of hot and cold drinks will be available along with food served all day in the dinning room.
