Dundee was invited to represent Scotland in the City category of the RHS Britain in Bloom 2015 final. We were delighted that Dundee achieved a Silver Gilt Award and was overall winner in the City category. This was a fantastic achievement and opportunity for Dundee with extremely positive feedback from the Britain in Bloom judges. They described Dundee as being a 'vibrant, environmentally responsible city'.
Whorterbank Community Tattie Patch
The Whorterbank Tattie Patch is a community vegetable patch in Lochee, planted and tended by children from the local out of school group and residents of the local multi-storeys. The project, supported by the Council's Community Allotment Officer, proved to be a huge success as a result of the hard work and dedication of the people who were involved.
