Established as a community volunteer group in late 2013, Brighter Bervie does what it says on the tin – the group brightens up the environment and community spirit in Inverbervie and the surrounding district. The focus of the groups’ activity is around a gardening project, transforming neglected spaces and street corners into attractive locations for the benefit of visitors and residents. Brighter Bervies’ flagship project is the Voyage of Life Garden which is a reflective pocket park in the heart of Bervie. The group has successfully installed a public art project, producing a beautiful sculpture trail around Bervie. The group aims to encourage people with mixed mental and physical abilities to participate in their activities and benefit from therapeutic gardening.
