After receiving a donation of plants from Martin Gorman at North Ayrshire Council, the Irvine Clean up Crew got straight to work on their new fairy garden

Members of the crew had a busy day preparing for the fairies moving in.

Thanks were given to the crew who worked hard at their newest project in the pouring rain.

Volunteers Sandra Hughes, Iona, Lesley and Laurie McDade as well as Jean Harris, all helped to plant in the fairy garden and have been working hard over the past few weeks to brighten up the community, improving its appearance.

Irvine Clean Up Crew have also been taking the time to clean the shore front and ensure there is as little litter as possible.

Well done to all of the volunteers.
