Rotary Clubs have joined forces to brighten up the streets of a community.
Residents in Torry worked with members of Rotaract and the St Fitticks, Deeside and St Machar Rotary clubs to plant bushes and shrubs at Victoria Bridge.
The initiative was one of several carried out by Rotaract – an organisation set up by Rotary International to give young men and women a chance to enhance their personal development as well as promoting better relationships in communities worldwide.
Last month, the organisation collected 27 bags of rubbish from the River Dee and Torry Battery during its monthly litter-pick.
Guy Bergman, of Rotaract, said: “The lovely volunteers and council staff worked hard together to transform the area by planting trees and shrubs, and we hope it can be enjoyed for many years to come by local residents. We would like to thank all the volunteers and Aberdeen City Council for their help.”
