Community groups in Alexandria are on a mission to create a green heritage corridor through Alexandria.
The initiative will see a community orchard, raised beds, flowers and soft fruit areas planted to create a green space from the Fountain to the tow path.
There are also plans for a parklet and play area to encourage families to enjoy the outdoor space and Black’s Yard will be cleared up and turned into a landscaped community hub.
Mylene Colquhoun, Leamy Foundation Co-ordinator, said: “This work is ongoing, we hope to make Alexandria the centre of green activities in West Dunbartonshire.
“There’ll be lots of free activities for people to get involved with, from litter picking to bulb planting, to making raised beds.”
The Leamy Foundation is working alongside Central Alexandria Tenants and Residents Association (CATRA), West Dunbartonshire Greenspace and Alexandria Community Action Network to green the area.
They are also conducting a survey to find out what training local residents would find useful.
Mylene added: “We’re keen to offer practical training, it could be anything from CV-writing to how to wire a plug.
“We want this to be a community hub where people can come, get involved and learn new skills.”
