Burgh Beautiful Volunbteers

Burgh Beautiful Linlithgow


We Always Need More Help!


There are various volunteering opportunities. You can adopt a bed or planter to look after on your own or with somebody else. There are also one-off activities like emptying or filling hanging baskets, planting trees, making holly balls, litter picking, assisting with plant deliveries, fundraising or joining one of the hit squads, which tackle different larger tasks such as the areas at the leisure centre cycle ramp. These are notified on this website.

If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Jean Long (Tel 01506 843461 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). 


Volunteering opportunities in the near future (see the activities page for dates and times) -

Plant delivery at Clarendon - we need help to unload the plants; lay them out in groups; and make up plant deliveries for each town bed and planter.

Holly ball making - come along to Clarendon and find out how to make holly balls or simply donate holly if you have some growing in your garden.

Tree planting - we are looking for lots of volunteers to help to plant trees near the leisure centre at Kettil'stoun.


Edinburgh Road entrance to the town hidden by weeds




Look at the difference made by volunteers at the Edinburgh Road Town Entrance by strimming the weeds to let the planters be seen by anyone entering the town via this route. In the past, this would have been attended to by West Lothian Council but due to cuts (no pun intended), Burgh Beautiful have had to add this to their list of activities in order to keep the town looking at its best. What a difference!
