Local group Brighter Bervie were given a welcome boost last weekend when the community met to tidy up the beachfront area.

Community group Made in the Mearns contacted the team of volunteers, who are dedicated to improve the appearance of the Royal Burgh, to offer them a community grant, to be used for the improvement of the town.

The money will go towards planting shrubs at the newly landscaped beach car park, but the group are busy with several other projects.

Tom Campbell, from Brighter Bervie, said: “In co-operation with Bervie Parish Church, Aberdeenshire Council Departments and the Maggie Law Museum we have the following objectives for the coming year: landscaping and development of a community garden behind the Bervie Church Centre; planting and public art in the recreational area central to the seafront amenity site after upgrading this winter; floral features at each entrance to Bervie plus planters in selected locations throughout the village, and assistance with the restoration of the RNLI garden behind the Sports Centre.

He added: ‘‘A big thank you also to Made in the Mearns for their support.’’
