The Battle Continues

By Jane Cruickshank / February 17, 2020

HORIZON volunteers will be back on the attack tomorrow in the town centre.

Armed with hoes and handtools, they will be continuing an assualt on the unwanted moss, grasses and dandelions that detract from the appearance of the area.

This will be the group’s fourth sortie this year, in what has been dubbed their ‘war on weeds’. They aim to tackle sections of the Market Square, Barclay Street, Cameron street and Allardice street.

Horizon convenor John Cruickshank said: ”The Council does not have the resources to do more than spray weedkiller a couple of times a year.

”With a little help from Horizon volunteers, clearing out the weeds and having a bit of a sweep around, clearly makes a big difference to how the streets look.”
