2021 Awards David Welch Memorial Award for Something Special

Alloa in Bloom is a newly constituted volunteer group, supported by Alloa First (BID) and working with other local charities to provide floral arrangements and pocket gardens in Alloa town centre for the pleasure of local people, visitors and shoppers. The group is planning to fundraise as well as offer friendship, a blether and lots of fun for local people.

In 2021, Alloa in Bloom won the David Welch Memorial Award for Something Special - for the partnership between Alloa First BID and Gartinny Nursery, an outreach facility run by Scottish Autism, for supply of quality plants for town centre displays. A key attribute to the group is how they have organised their supply of plant material. Instead of relying on their local authority, they have established a working partnership with a plant nursery, which is an outreach facility run by Scottish Autism. The town centre is a riot of colour, with numerous hanging containers, half barrels and planters, and the plants are grown to a standard as good as, if not better, than any leading Scottish ornamental plant producer.
