Banchory Horticultural Society stalwart, Betty Beaton, 89 years old, opened her garden to the public on the weekend of August 8 & 9.

The weather was kind and the many visitors were appreciative of the wonderful colours and enormous variety of plants.

They also enjoyed refreshments supplied by volunteers.

Almost £370 was raised and has been donated to the Banchory Group Practice.
