Selkirk Chamber of Trade is seeking green-fingered volunteers to make the town centre look blooming pretty this summer.

Chairman Will Haegeland explained: “Last year, along with the help of Selkirk Community Council, we sponsored hanging flower baskets for the High Street with a water bowser to make it easier to water the baskets.

“Through tremendous support from a few volunteers, the baskets were watered every morning throughout the season, which kept the flowers blooming for all to see.

“Would you like to support your town by volunteering to water the baskets one morning a week? The more people we have the easier it will be. If you are an early riser, this is for you, as the watering has to be done in the morning before the sun gets too high.

“With the A7 coming right through the centre of town, Selkirk is in a unique position to impress, and we need to present Selkirk as a colourful, vibrant community, which would encourage visitors to stop and spend time and money in the town, and help local businesses.

“Please get in touch – let’s make Selkirk the prettiest town in the Borders.”

Anyone interested should contact Will on 01750 721233 or email will@countyhotelselkirk.co.uk.
