 By the time you’re reading this, I hope you have seen the progress being made in both Powrie and Williamson Parks.

 Thanks to the very generous donation of time and machinery from Ogilvy Webster (Webster Building Supplies) and John MacGregor (Binn Farm), the old play equipment was removed from both parks and the ground cleared at no financial cost to the project. This saving, together with the funding and donations we have received, mean PKC will be able to complete the work as planned. Williamson Park and the playground at Powrie should both be finished by the end of April.

We would like to thank Branston Ltd and the (old) Abernethy Horticultural Society for their generous donations and acknowledge the support of Awards for All, BIG Lottery Communities and Families Fund, Perth & Kinross Quality of Life Trust and Tesco Community Fund. Finally, thanks again to everyone who supported the quiz night, clothes swap or ceilidh – all the effort has been worthwhile!

AEA are now fundraising to complete phase 2 of Powrie Park. This will include benches, planting, improved footpaths and car parking. Please check our progress on the website abernethyparksproject.webs.com
