The Friends of Fountain Green (FoFG) are a group of volunteers founded by members of Loanhead Parish Church after there was a need for the community to take on the maintenance of the flowerbeds in both Memorial Park and Fountain Green. In May of 2018 the church organized a community event where the church congregation took time from their normal Sunday service to plant out both park areas for the first time.

Since then, a formal group has been created to ensure that the flowerbeds in both Memorial Park and Fountain Green continue to be looked after by the community.

The group has a weeding rota and planting events throughout the year. If you would like to learn more about the group then please visit them on Facebook: Friends of Fountain Green or email them at

Anyone can become a member of the group and it would be great to have more volunteers helping us to look after these vital green spaces in Loanhead.
