Tarves was narrowly beaten this year in the Formartine in Bloom competition by arch rival and neighbour Pitmedden Village in Udny. Gordon Brown, Sheila Ewen and the rest of the Tarves Amenities Group had made a lot of improvements and the floral displays looked excellent. However, by judging day, some bad weather had caused more problems for the Tarves crew than Pitmedden and judges gave the top accolade to Pitmedden – but they admit it was close. Congratulations to all who have helped.
If you want Tarves to get that top spot… but more importantly, just to make our village a great place to live, please give Gordon Brown a call on: 851040 to get involved. Every little helps, from looking after a flower tub to helping with the watering and planting.
