A very well-deserved bit of support, as reported in the Herald:
Waitrose cheque will help fund new work by Friends of The Byes
The Friends of The Byes, who work voluntarily to protect and cultivate the much-loved riverside area, have received a welcome donation towards the exciting new work they are planning.
They were presented with a cheque for £378 by Waitrose under its Community Matters scheme.
They meet on most Saturday mornings to tackle small maintenance tasks such as clearing paths, planting shrubs and small trees, maintaining the wild flower meadow and beating down persistent invaders such as Himalayan Balsam.
