To contact the DGUC, please provide all details in the boxes below. This connects you with the Secretary and Treasurer.



Before you make contact, please read the paragraphs below:


If your enquiry is related to obtaining a key to the Gardens, please be aware that these are private Gardens that are accessible only to Owners of property in the streets called Drumsheugh Gardens that immediately surround the Gardens. Owners have a right to access through their title deeds. No exceptions to this rule are permitted under the terms & conditions of the DGUC Constitution.


Owners pay an annual fee to contribute to the upkeep of the Gardens. A Garden key can be issued to valid owners (one key per household), upon payment of a deposit, presently £50 for residential owners, refundable upon return. You are required to provide proof of ownership/address and your key number is recorded.


Enquiries about other matters; subject to the complexity/nature of requests (such as condition of trees/technical matters) we may have to consult the appropriate person, a Committee Member or one of our Consultants/Contractors with the right skills to respond effectively. As DGUC Members offer services on a voluntary basis, between other commitments, please be patient if a response to your request or question is not forthcoming as quickly as you might like.

Contact: When submitting details below, you confirm you have read and understand the paragraphs above. Please provide details of your address as an Owner in Drumsheugh Gardens. 

Please indicate whether or not you are a dog-owner and intend to access the Gardens with your dog(s).
