A park in Keith has enjoyed the green shoots of recovery after distillery employees banded together with locals.
Staff from Chivas Brothers joined the St Rufus Park Regeneration Group and Moray Council to replace benches and install new bike racks.
About 30 employees from the firm donned gardening clothes and dug out tools to help attract more visitors to the outdoors in Moray.
Graeme Cruickshank, operations manager at Strathisla Distillery, said: “I grew up in Keith and would visit St Rufus Park regularly – my own children played there too.
“It’s a fantastic facility in our community, allowing youngsters to enjoy the outdoors in a safe and fun environment.
“I’m proud to be part of the regeneration work, helping to improve the space for future generations.”
The green-fingered Chivas staff got involved as part of their efforts for National Volunteers Week. Employees who were unable to help at the park cleared rubbish for the charity Keep Scotland Beautiful.
Gail Smith, chairwoman of the park’s regeneration group, said: “We are very keen to ensure this involves the whole community.
“The project will provide the community and visitors to Keith with a new, exciting park for all ages to enjoy
“The volunteers’ efforts are greatly appreciated in assisting us with the initial stages of the project.”
