Cyrenians launched the revamped floral clock today, 31st July, in Dollar Park Falkirk. 60 years since the original clock was installed, the charity has worked with Falkirk Rotary Club, Friends of Dollar Park and Falkirk Community Justice to bring the iconic clock back to the community of Falkirk.
We deliver sustainable solutions for the causes and consequences of homelessness and delivers a range of services from the newly refurbished Arntodale House in Falkirk. This is one of only two working floral clocks in Scotland and represents a collaborative approach to restoring Dollar Park as the heart of the community.
Cyrenians Senior Service Manager Lynda Ross-Hale said, “The floral clock is a true representation of the power of collaborative working here in Falkirk.
“With support from the Falkirk Rotary Club, Friends of Dollar Park and Community Justice services we’ve been able to reintroduce this historic landmark 60 years after it was first installed.
“At Cyrenians we believe that everyone deserves to feel part of the community, and this clock represents that journey – working together to create something that benefits all.”
Jim Cairns, President of The Rotary Club of Falkirk said, “Working with Cyrenians and the Friends of Dollar Park has allowed us to bring to life our ambitious plans to reinstate the floral clock.
“It was a pleasure fundraising for such a celebrated focal point and I hope our community enjoys the fruits of the incredible amount of effort that went in to creating it.
“We believe in the value of investing in our local community to improve Falkirk for everyone, and working collaboratively on this project has allowed us to reach even more people than before.”
