Residents in one of Moray’s most scenic seaside villages have been doing their best to brighten up its streets in time for summer.
The Cullen Past and Present volunteer group has taken it upon themselves to place planters filled with flowers around the community.
The outfit has teamed with Deskford Community Council and the Cullen Youth Cafe for the project, which has been funded by charity drives throughout the year and an annual grant from the Seafield Estate.
The planters, which were formerly whisky barrels used in the region’s malt industry, have been positioned at various locations throughout Cullen, Deskford and Lintmill.
After the hefty wooden objects were repurposed, they were brightened up with flowers grown by the Cullen Youth Cafe.
Youngsters will busy themselves over the summer by ensuring that the decorative additions to the village remain watered and looked after.
Cullen Past and Present chairman Dennis Paterson is delighted with the project, and said: “I’d like to thank all those involved in making the planters, setting them out, and planting them.
“They have all helped to add more colour to the Cullen area.”
The volunteer group is holding a fundraising dance to amass more cash for similar community initiatives next month.
Singer Andy Layton James will perform a range of popular hits at Cullen Bowling and Tennis Club on Saturday July 8, from 9pm to 12-30am.
Tickets are available from McKay’s Mini Market, Cullen Paper Shop, The Jays Coffee Shop, The Bowling Club and from members of the volunteer group.
