Floral Displays Co-ordinator, Pat Veitch is recognised for her hard work & commitment

BID has recognised the long service of Pat Veitch as co-ordinator of the annual Inverness floral displays with a presentation of a specially commissioned painting.

Pat has been the voluntary organiser of the floral decorations since the project started in 1994 and continues to act as liaison with businesses with regard to the installation of the displays.

BID Chairman Craig Duncan said “BID is enormously indebted to Pat for all of her efforts in maintaining the high standard of displays in Inverness city centre.

When BID was formed in 2008 we took on the responsibility for co-ordinating this project which has continued to receive invaluable financial support from the Inverness Common Good Fund as well as our own contribution from the BID levy.

Pat is the ultimate volunteer committing an enormous amount of time and effort to this project over so many years for the benefit of Inverness.

We thought a good way of recognising her contribution would be to have a painting commissioned by local artist Al Knight showing the Town House with its floral decorations in the forefront.  It was my pleasure to make that presentation to her.”

Over 700 floral displays are provided annually throughout Inverness through this programme – the displays are installed in mid June, watered weekly and displayed until mid October.
