Children from local nursery Scallywags have been watching D J LAING’s demolition and housebuilding works on a neighbouring site from their nursery in Taymouth Terrace, Carnoustie.

On Friday some of the children from the nursery visited the development at Malt Loan to meet the Team and help with some gardening in the newly built homes.

Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t too kind but this didn’t dampen the children’s spirits. The children took their time with planting some bedding plants and learnt about caring for the plants and how they’d grow in the next few months. The children also filled up the bespoke bird house (a replica of a D J Laing home) with nuts for the birds.

After all their hard work they were treated to some well earned refreshments and given sunflower seeds to take home and plant in their own garden. The children will keep an eye on the birds and their plants when they go out for walks from the nursery.
