    Castlebank volunteers have been busy preparing a host of spring plants, ready for sale this Saturday and Sunday.

    “We also have tomato and strawberry plants available if you’re looking to grow your own food, as well as cucumbers, courgettes, melons and nasturtium.”

    If travelling by car, visitors are advised to park in the main car park in Castlebank Park and make their way on foot as there are limited spaces at the centre.

    Any profits will be re-invested into Lanark Community Development Trust, so it can continue to deliver this project, as well as others in the town.
