A rotary club in Linlithgow has been able to give its community planter a new lease of life, thanks to our donation of materials, plants and new hanging baskets.

Roots of a nearby tree had damaged the rear of the planter at the Rotary Club of Linlithgow Grange, which needed to be removed before the space could be replanted with new perennial shrubs and plants.

The landscape, which creates a welcoming arrival to the town, and is located adjacent to our Queenswood development, has now been transformed with colourful new plants and feature planter, thanks to help and materials from our landscaping team.

Joan Hale, President of the Rotary Club, said: “We were overjoyed with Cala’s generous offer to remove the tree that had been causing damage to the planter and to add in new plants – it looks fantastic.

“While Cala did most of the heavy lifting, it was great to get a local company involved to do the planting.

“We asked if they could put in a new, larger plant to be a focal point that wouldn’t cause any damage, and for Cala to use perennial plants instead of annual plants – and the results are great.”

Our team replaced the timber retention of the planter and arranged for a Linlithgow based, Land Technology LTD, to plant cascading flowers and Begonias around its base.

We have a long history of supporting and investing in the communities we work in, by reaching out to local groups, and sports clubs to offer its assistance through a variety of longer term sponsorships and our yearly community bursary which invites charities, voluntary organisations and community groups to apply for a share of funding, with more than 300 worthy causes receiving over £300,000 since the initiative was launched in 2016.

Derek Lawson, Strategic Land Director in our East team said: “The Rotary Club of Linlithgow Grange does such an amazing job of supporting the local community and we are so happy to be able to give back.”

The development incorporates just 40 detached five-bedroom family homes, each averaging more than 2000 square feet each.
