Sowing the seed

A SUPERMARKET in Dumfries is giving away hundreds of sunflower seeds to customers in an effort to spread hope and lift the spirits of the nation.

Morrisons hope the freebie will put smiles on faces and say the seeds represent a new beginning after covid.

CEO David Potts said: “This has been a very difficult year for our country and this winter has seemed especially dark and tough. So as spring arrives, and with covid seemingly in retreat, we want to help celebrate the growing sense of national optimism by planting these sunflowers across the UK, representing the brighter and lighter times of hope ahead.”
