Edinburgh's floral clock goes Fairtrade

by Andrew Williams | July 17, 2014

Growing up on the outskirts of Edinburgh, no trip into town was complete without a wander past the floral clock in Princes Street Gardens. I'm sure many towns have these, but there was always something special about this colourful timepiece in the heart of such a great and ancient city. Edinburgh was the first place to have a floral clock - the current one was commissioned in 1903. 

Imagine my delight then to see that the floral clock has gone Fairtrade! This is to celebrate Edinburgh's ten years as a Fairtrade city. It almost makes me nostalgic for Auld Reekie... and then I remember the walk into work on a rainy, windy, February morning. Lovely place in the summer though!

Well done to Scotmid who acted as one of the sponsors of the clock.
