Aberfeldy is a small market town on the banks of the River Tay in Highland Perthshire. Robert Burns immortalised the town in his poem the Birks O' Aberfeldy and the town also is known for its Wade's Bridge, built in 1733; General Wade considered this bridge to be his greatest accomplishment.
Feldy in Flower
Feldy in Flower (formerly Aberfeldy Move2Improve ) is a local group of volunteers which aims to make Aberfeldy a brighter and more colourful environment for residents and visitors. New volunteers and new project ideas are always welcome!
To learn more, follow Feldy in Flower on Facebook.
The group encourages home owners, shop keepers and other businesses to keep their premises tidy and attractive and to encourage youth participation. It also promotes sponsorship of approved projects and co-ordinates the efforts of various different groups, all working together to improve Aberfeldy for residents and visitors. Volunteers plant and maintain various areas in the town and provide hanging baskets for lamp posts and basket trees. Aberfeldy businesses contribute to their own baskets which includes watering. Perth & Kinross Council helps with an annual budget which offsets some of the cost of the baskets.
The volunteers have also completed many environmental improvement projects over the years. Most recently, the Aberfeldy Lower Birks project (pictured left) significantly improved the environment at the Lower Birks. Work got underway in September 2017 and was completed in October 2018 when an official opening ceremony was held.
