A very productive weekend at Sir James McKay House began with a very kind donation from the Widows Sons Scotland East Chapter, with President Rob Harrison Vice President Mark Thomson and Past Provincial Grand Master Alistair Marshall.
They delivered and donated brand new planters to enhance the garden at the home in Edinburgh, along with top soil to fill the containers and all were greatly appreciated by Home Manager, Gillian Hunter.
This then allowed Lodge Kirkliston Maitland 482 to once again donate shrubs and bedding plants to fill all the new planters.
482 also donated a new hose and fittings, allowing the residents to help water the plants during the summer season. Team 482 enjoyed a very productive Sunday morning planting in the sunshine and this contribution was greatly appreciated by Catherine Anderson, Assistant Manager at the home.
A big thank you also to the PGL of Edinburgh and Brother Ralph Shaw, RWM of Lodge St. Andrew No.48, for replacing the outside tap at the home.
So the homes garden is now all set up for a colourful summer season for the residents to enjoy.
