Yesterday and today a wide variety of the community have been helping out at the GSPCA.

St Andrews Floral Group have been working with the GSPCA to help improve the grounds at the Shelter in St Andrews and help the biodiversity to improve the site for the wildlife in the area.

On Friday led by Ann Wragg volunteers from St Andrews Floral Group and also staff from Waitrose spent the morning willow weaving and planting around the duck pond at the GSPCA. Today a group from the Probation Service along with volunteers from the RSPB and St Andrews Floral Group have been busy planting hedging and continuing the work started on Friday.

Not only are the St Andrews Floral Group helping on site they are also looking for funding to help with the projects on site and with improving the wildlife rehabilitation facilities at the Animal Shelter.

Some of the projects include


  • Improving the pond on site to make deeper sections and a pond dipping area for children
  • Improving the fields on site and moving soil
  • Making a new bank (pending planning permission)
  • Repairing a retaining wall
  • Tiling the seal and turtle wildlife rehabilitation area
  • Tiling the floor in the wildlife and hedgehog unit
  • Placing a new floor in the wildlife hospital area
  • Replanting the hanging baskets and planters around site
  • Planting hedging
  • Providing a picnic area
  • Improving the memorial garden
  • Putting bird nesting and box boxes around site
  • Building a larger pool for the seals and oiled birds
  • Putting path ways for visitors
  • Landscaping and much more.......


So far St Andrews Floral Group have managed to raise donations from Situations Recruitment, the Co-op Eco Fund and Men of the Tress and we are hugely grateful to all involved and helped so far.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "As you can see we have quite a few projects we would like to achieve with St Andrews Floral Group both around the grounds and to help the rescue wildlife in our care at the GSPCA."

"It is amazing the number of people that have already helped on site at the GSPCA including Situations Recruitment, RBS, Elizabeth College, Waitrose, the Probation Service, RSPB, staff from Quex Gardens and of course the St Andrews Floral Group volunteers as well as others."

"Ann who is working with us and in many ways driving the project is fantastic and we are so grateful to her for all of her amazing efforts as well as her team of volunteers from St Andrews Floral Group."

"Every week the grounds are developing at the GSPCA and once complete the general public will be able to come up enjoy the grounds and bring a picnic."

"There are many more ways we are trying to develop our site and to see some you can visit our Wish List."

"If you would like to get involved or like to support us in improving the grounds or facilities you can email me [email protected] or Ann Wragg from St Andrews Floral Group [email protected]."
