Community groups encouraged to take action and transform green spaces


Scotmid Uddingston is celebrating the launch of its 2022 Caulders Garden Center pop-up by helping community groups across Lanarkshire transform green spaces.

The store would like to hear from local groups working on projects such as transforming housing estates, developing wildflower gardens or improving small green spaces to promote positive mental well-being.

Kirsty George, local sourcing manager at Scotmid, said the store was “really delighted” to help groups within the local community bring their green-fingered dreams to life.

She told Lanarkshire Live: “We hope the Caulders pop-up will help not just local groups but the whole community to brighten up their gardens ahead of the summer months.”

Last year, to celebrate the launch of the Caulders pop-up, volunteers from Uddingston Pride received a donation from Scotmid’s Uddingston store which helped to grow more beautiful plants and flowers locally.

Liz Wilson, former president of Uddingston Pride, said their “main objective” was always to raise community spirit.

She told us: “And with Scotmid’s donation, we were able to plant flowers both at the parish church and in a planter outside the Scotmid funeral branch.

“We were delighted to add even more color to Uddingston ahead of the summer months – it has certainly helped boost morale in the local community!”

Local groups should email [email protected] as soon as possible to let Scotmid know about their project and what they need to make it flourish!
