Grab a tasty treat from one of our delicious businesses and enjoy it at one of our new brightly coloured benches!

Funded by Elgin BID and the Scotland Loves Local Funding, we created and put in place 5 picnic benches in July. The benches were not only to create more seating in the City Centre but to also help hospitality businesses when they were operating at reduced capacity.

The benches were expertly crafted by Willie Duncan our Street Ambassador who (very conveniently) is a joiner to trade. They only took a few days to paint and build- very speedy indeed!

The three pink benches are all inclusive benches so wheelchair users and prams and sit at the bench with no pesky table legs getting in the way. You will find these benches at the grassy area at Café Kombucha and on the Plainstones at the back of St Giles Church.

Since being installed the benches have been well used!

Come the Winter the benches will be put in storage to keep them protected from the Winter weather (wouldn’t it be great to hide from the winter weather, hibernation anyone?). In Spring they will get a wee touch up with paint if needed and be back out ready for the better weather.
