Wilma Gunn has thanked townsfolk and businesses for adding some colour to the Royal Burgh this summer.
While she was a member of Selkirk Community Council, Mrs Gunn decided to spruce up the town centre by adding floral displays.
And she says the reaction has been positive from visitors and residents of Selkirk in its 900th year as a Royal Burgh.
Mrs Gunn said: “Of course I couldn’t have done this on my own and I would like to thank those who have helped to beautify our town.
“To the small group who supported me, consisting of Will Haegeland and Edith Scott from the Selkirk Chamber of Trade, Graham Easton from the Community Council and Lawrence Robertson from the Town Centre Regeneration Groupthank you.”
She also thanked sponsors, including Selkirk Community Council and Spark Energy, the latter helping to provide the water bowser for the hanging baskets.
Others sponsors to back Mrs Gunn’s dream include Elliot Henderson Forestry, Henderson Grass Machinery, Benchmark Motors and Les Millar Motors, while Philiphaugh Gardens were thanked for supplying the flowers and the baskets.
Mrs Gunn also praised Fraser Dunlop from Scottish Borders Council’s parks department for his co-operation, as well as the volunteers who look after the displays every morning.
She added: “Most of all I would like to thank the shopkeepers and businesses who agreed to take the flower baskets and paying their share to make the ‘Auld Grey Toun’ a much more colourful place.”
