New metal planters with concrete plinths will be placed at key points throughout Dailly, thanks to a successful application by Dailly Community Council to the George Todd Memorial Fund.
The George Todd Memorial Fund was created when the George Todd Memorial Hall in the village was sold, with the funds to be used for the benefit of the local inhabitants of Dailly and Old Dailly.The fund is administered by South Ayrshire Council who consider any applications for funding.
Dailly Community Council applied to the George Todd Memorial Fund for £11,836 towards the cost of their new planters.
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.
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.
