Volunteers spruce up scruffy shop

Local people have got so fed up with the scruffy look of the CostCutter shop at the top of Rosslyn Crescent that they have taken matters into their own hands and tidied some of the flowerbeds themselves.

The picture above shows one of the flowerbeds outside the store before it was painstakingly weeded by guerrilla gardening volunteers.

Below is the bed after two bin bags of weeds and rubbish were removed.

HCRA hopes these sterling efforts will lead to a more formal partnership with the shop to help it clean up its act including removing unsightly rubbish more regularly, doing away with piles of pallets and boxes and repairing a broken window as well as mowing the lawn and planting more shrubs and flowers.
