CES press officer John Kay said: “If people come along they can see the equipment we are selling. If we manage to sell the lawnmowers, the proceeds will go towards the upkeep of the garden and towards buying new mowers which we badly need.”

The tucked-away haven which is near Greenfaulds Bowling Club is the handiwork of an army of volunteers in Cumbernauld and features and impressive variety of trees, flowers and mini-memorials.
