New planters will brighten up Dailly

Dailly Community Council have been successful in receiving a significant funding boost from the George Todd Memorial Fund which is set to spruce up the village.

The Community Council have gained £11,836 from the George Todd Memorial Fund which was created when the memorial hall was sold and now new metal planters with concrete plinthers will soon be place around key area in the village.

The fund is administered by the council and is used to benefit residents in Dailly and Old Dailly.

John Whiteford, Chair of Dailly Community Council said: “I am delighted that we have received funding for our intergenerational planting project. The new planters and plinths will mean that we can bring a splash of colour all year round to our village, which can be enjoyed by local people and visitors to the area. This is a real village project, involving people of all ages who have a pride in their village.”

The planters will be placed at various focal points in the village at the bench at the Miners Memorial, Dailly Trails, The Square and on bus routes in and out of the village.

Councillor Robin Reid, Resources and Performance Portfolio Holder for the Council said; “Everyone who lives in or travels through Dailly will be able to enjoy the new planters which will enhance the environment.

“The replacement of the planters and plinths will be a real community project with the Community Council co-ordinating school children, interested teenagers and other villagers to plant, look after and be responsible for specific planters.
