Bridge of Earn
Bridge of Earn is a small town that lies on the River Earn just south of Perth. Site of an important historic river crossing point in the Parish of Dunbarney, it now lies just off the M90 motorway making it convenient for travel to many parts of Scotland.
The 'Brig in Bloom' voluntary group was formed in 1998 to improve the appearance and environment of the parish of Dunbarney and to encourage home owners, shopkeepers and other business people to keep their premises tidy and attractive. The volunteers work on a range of projects with different groups, and in co-operation with Perth and Kinross Council. One of the most popular features in the town is the 'Brig Bloomer', a donated boat filled with bedding plants located at the bridge on entering the village. New volunteers are always welcome to join the group, which continues to develop innovative projects that are enhancing the local environment.
