Bucksburn has received some extra festive cheer with the addition of a community Christmas tree, which has been planted as a permanent fixture, thanks to support from Dandara.
Members of the Brighter Bucksburn community group officially switched on the tree alongside Dandara’s director of sales in Aberdeen, Peter Best. Planted in a prominent location on the Old Meldrum Road, it will remain for years to come.
Brighter Bucksburn was set up by Bucksburn and Newhills Community Council to oversee improvements to the local area. In 2017 the group achieved a Beautiful Scotland silver award for its efforts.
Lesley Glasser, from Brighter Bucksburn said: “As an experiment last year, the group planted a small tree on Old Meldrum Road and decorated it with lights. It proved so popular we expanded the idea this year and thanks to Dandara’s help, we purchased a much bigger tree which looks fantastic.”
Peter Best, director of sales for Dandara in Aberdeen said: “We are proud to support the communities in which we work and were more than happy to join Brighter Bucksburn’s campaign.”
