Local schools' bulb competition - and the winner is...

February 10, 2017

The schools' bulb competition starts in the Autumn with volunteers packing over 1,000 bulbs ((hyacinths and Tête à Tête narcissi) into individual packs for local primary schools. 

 

These bulb packs were distributed to 522 children in classes 4 & 5 of the 13 Primary Schools in Helensburgh & Lomond District.
