Elderslie Community Council has been working hard over the past few years to make the village a more colourful place. It has put in barrier planters on Main Road, two large square planter at the Boer Well, and a large square planter and pagoda in Stoddard Square. It has also adopted two flower beds and three planters outside the village hall. The group has worked alongside the Scouts, a local group with learning difficulties and the Rotary Club in its endeavours. It has also been working hard in its new play park in the centre of the village and hopes to fill this with flower beds and trees.
