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 and refundable upon return. You are required to provide proof of ownership/address and key number recorded. Lost keys can only be replaced upon payment of a further fee.


Enquiries about other matters; subject to nature of request, such as condition of trees or other technical matters, we will consult the appropriate person, a Committee Member or one of our Consultants/Contractors with the right skills to respond effectively. As DGUC Members offer their services voluntarily, between other commitments, please be patient if responses to your requests are not forthcoming as quickly as you wish.

In submitting details below, you confirm you have read and understand the paragraphs above. Please provide details as an Owner in Drumsheugh Gardens and indicate if you are a dog-owner intending to access the Gardens with your dog. Please read 'Dog Guidelines' on the Resident's Information page.
