Beautiful Scotland

COMMUNITY groups in the region are being invited to boost their areas and join the 2022 Beautiful Scotland and It’s Your Neighbourhood initiatives.

Groups with an interest in improving their local environment – from cities and towns, to villages, parks or community gardens – are welcome to register and take part, with a deadline of 30 April 2022.

Run by the charity in partnership with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), the projects give volunteers and groups the chance to benefit from expert support, resources and recognition for their efforts to protect and enhance their local places.

This year’s theme will be the ‘Year of Stories’ and ideas include installing new interpretation panels to showcase an area’s history or natural wonders and using plants to tell a story.

And the best creations can enter the annual contest, with judging due to held in August.

Catherine Gee, deputy CEO of Keep Scotland Beautiful, said: “We’d love people from well-established groups, through to those just starting out, to register for free support through the Beautiful Scotland or It’s Your Neighbourhood initiatives this year – joining a network of passionate people who they can share their stories with and learn from.”

An online information session will be held next week, on February 17 at 6 pm.
