Green prizes for groups

Have your say

FIVE community groups from the Capital have been presented with environmental It’s Your Neighbourhood awards by the Keep Scotland Beautiful charity.

Claremont Court Residents Association, Craigmillar & Peffermill Tenants Group, GOALS in Greendykes, The Salvation Army, Ashbrook, and the Westburn Village Neighbourhood Council were all rewarded for their year-round efforts in creating beautiful, clean and green neighbourhoods.

Derek Robertson, chief executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful, said: “It’s Your Neighbourhood empowers groups across Scotland to change the areas they live in for the better – for their own benefit, their community, and for visitors. These groups should all be praised for the results they achieve.”
