The community council are undertaking community grounds improvements in their area, through  the Earlston Community Action Plan and welcomed the donation of  500 narcissus and 500 crocus bulbs, which were handed over  to Earlston Community Council Chair Sheila Gibb and Community Council member Gill Cooper, by Scott Buchanan from idverde and Keith Goodfellow of SBHA.


Sheila Gibb, Earlston Community Council Chair said:  “We were delighted when SBHA donated a thousand spring bulbs to enable our local volunteers to plant the roadside banking at the foot of Church Brae.   Its great when local organisations and businesses work within the community, particularly at this early stage of our Community Action Plan and our aim to make Earlston more attractive.  Hopefully the bulbs will give early colour at the corner next year and show that an joint activity like this can make a visual difference to that part of the village.”


Idverde Ltd ( via its legacy company, Land Engineering) has been working in partnership with SBHA to provide grounds maintenance and winter maintenance since 2014. In 2018 idverde was re-awarded the contact for three-year term, with potential to extend for further two years


The donation to the Earlston Community Action Plan is part of idverde’s commitment to provide community benefits to the areas served by SBHA.
