An award winning voluntary organisation who seek to protect, preserve and enhance the environmental qualities of Milngavie by the prevention of litter and promoting high standards of cleanliness in public places. Through displays of flowers, shrubs and trees in areas visible to the public, the group also aims to educate the public about the natural environment.
Over the years our work has expanded from our initial work in the precinct and at Milngavie railway station to include the Antonine Garden, the Town Hall and Lillie Art Gallery, the start of the West Highland Way with the assistance of the Bearsden & Milngavie Ramblers, and more recently the Allander Walkway. Our volunteers also work at the sheltered housing on Park Road. We have helped Mugdock Rangers to tackle invasive non-native plant species on Barloch Moor, Friends of Milngavie Reservoir to prune climbing roses at the reservoir and Baldernock Garden Club volunteers to restore the gardens at Gavin’s Mill.
We were delighted to be awarded a Gold Medal Certificate in September 2019.
Milngavie in Bloom relies on volunteers to run our organisation, that’s why we’re always delighted when someone wants to join us. Love gardening? Why not come along to our garden group sessions and get your hands dirty planting in one of our community beds. Or if keeping our town looking it’s best sounds like your cup of tea, join-in with our ‘clean sweep’ litter picking sessions. No experience is necessary and most sessions are run on a drop-in basis.
