A Community Garden now has a picturesque new entrance thanks to the work of a local craftsman.

The Kemnay Community Garden, which is based at the former Birley Bush Depot in the town has seen a transformation of the derelict ground into a thriving local focal point.

Hard work and commitment from locals and members of the group Greener Kemnay have turned it into a community garden which includes floral displays, raised vegetable beds and fruit trees.

Earlier this year, metalworker George Andrew was commissioned to create a new gate for the site, and several designs were proposed.

Following public feedback it was decided that an arched topped gate adorned with flowers and insects bearing the legend of Birley Bush Community Garden would be the one to be constructed.

After construction, the gates were installed last week creating a new entrance way.
