Also thanks to everyone who turned out on Sunday at the Tree Planting at Beecraigs Country Park. A mixture of ages were involved including several family groups and Beavers. Lots of trees were planted and lots of delicious cake consumed. Thanks to the staff at Beecraigs for keeping us right and supplying the cake.

Holly Balls and Wreaths

A thank you from Moira and Petra -



We wish to thank everyone who generously gifted their holly, and those who went out seeking it from far and wide, and bringing it in to Clarendon.  Without your support, there would be no hollyballs or Christmas wreaths made at all.

A special thanks to Shirley and Kathy for help in preparing the sheds for the hollyballs and wreaths, and equally for putting them to rights afterwards !

Thank you to everyone who gave so generously of their time and skills and efforts to make these wonderful hollyballs, and the most beautiful Christmas wreaths.   The quality of this work is a real credit to the members of Burgh Beautiful Linlithgow.

Thank you to Myra for organising refreshments for everyone, with delicious home baking.  Always a treat, and very welcome to keep us all going ! 

Thank you also to those of you who have purchased the hollyballs and Christmas wreaths, as this supports Burgh Beautiful with much needed funds.  We hope that you and your families and friends will enjoy these lovely decorations throughout the festive season.

And thank you to everyone who is kindly taking the time and effort to deliver the hollyballs and wreaths to all of our customers.

It has been a fantastic team effort with the holly, and we wish you all the very happiest Christmas and New Year to come.
