THE McCreath Park Rockery Project has been struggling to thrive in the dry weather conditions in Girvan.

But luckily, Girvan Fire and Rescue came to help last week after the project’s ‘new and expensive plants’ were ‘struggling’ to grow in the recent dry weather.

Stuart White, Garry McNeil, Kieran Farrell, Dougie McTaggart, Greg Adams and Ryan Farrell, the on-duty firemen who helped hydrate the rockery’s plants, said it was ‘all good practice’.

The Renovation of the Rockery was started by a small group of local ladies when they noticed the area had fallen into a ‘sorry state’. 
This is the first year for the new plants which were bought with a donation from Girvan Rotary.

New bollard fencing, repaired steps, loads of plants, removal of mare’s tail and much hard work has produced a massive improvement at this location at the North Harbour.

Speaking previously to the Ayr Advertiser Series, a spokesperson for Girvan Rotary said: “This little part of the town is starting to look just swell – go and have a look. 

“This Rockery will need a lot of help to keep it nice and that help will be needed for years to come, if you have a couple of hours on a sunny day then come along and join in.”

If you have two hours a week to spare, the group would be delighted with your help.
