Beechgrove Garden – Mucking In 2021 episode 1: The Beechgrove team are in the Mar Policies area of Alloa to kickstart a garden makeover with the Wimpy Park Community Group. Over the space of just a few days, the Wimpy Park community, together with just a little help from Beechgrove, transform a neglected walled garden and make it into an accessible space built by the community, for the community.
At nearly three acres it’s a massive site, and with four areas in need of TLC, it’s a challenge that requires everyone to be mucking in, but the team are determined that the project makes it from design to done. The park has been selected by The Beechgrove Garden show for a special DIY SOS and the Wimpy Park Community Group are now on the lookout for volunteers to help out while they are filming.
Filming is set to take place for one week around the third week of August and the group are looking for people to help make a difference and put Alloa on the map “for the right reasons”. Rev Jason Lingiah, chair of the Alloa Community Council, is delighted to see the group get some much deserved help.
