Robert Purvis Plant Hire support Carnegie Dunfermline Trust's Pittencrieff park planting 

Dunfermline: Carnegie Trust accept new cherry tree walk to mark Rotary Club of Dunfermline's centenary year

A BLOSSOMING walk following rows of cherry trees has been handed over to the owners of Pittencrieff Park.

The Carnegie Dunfermline Trust, who own the Glen under an agreement with Fife Council, have celebrated the addition of 35 flowering trees which have been planted southwards from the Pavilion towards the Forth Street entrance.

The walk marks the centenary year of the Rotary Club of Dunfermline, with Gillian Taylor, CEO of the trust, saying it will be an "enduring legacy".

She added: “The new trees will undoubtedly greatly extend and enhance the existing similar walkway from the Carnegie Trust headquarters to the Pavilion."

Brian Blanchflower, immediate past president, of the club commented that Rotarians were "very happy with this project in their local environment which had also been accepted and approved for inclusion in the Queen’s Green Canopy to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee."

He thanked Bob Purvis and Bob Garmory, of Purvis Plant Hire in Lochgelly, who helped bring the project to life with their "exceptional and much-appreciated support by providing heavy machinery and skilled operators to assist with the planting process".

Aileen North, president of the West Fife Rotary Club, also attended, presenting a new bench gifted from her club to be installed on the walkway.
