Awards for Dunkeld and Birnam in Bloom
Dunkeld and Birnam in Bloom wish to announce our success in achieving two silver gilt awards : The first from Beautiful Scotland and the second from Take a Pride in Perth and Kinross.
Beautiful Scotland Awards celebrate Perth and Kinross successes.
The National awards ceremony recognises Perth and Kinross’ environmental efforts. Community groups, local authorities and businesses from all across Scotland, gathered in Dunfermline on Thursday 7 September to celebrate the annual Beautiful Scotland Awards, organised by environmental charity, Keep Scotland Beautiful. The ceremony, hosted by Fife Council, recognised the work undertaken in communities throughout Scotland to help deliver environmental improvements in their local area - including the efforts of seven Perth and Kinross groups.
The Perth and Kinross winners were:
● Beautiful Perth - Gold medal certificate, Large Town Category Award Winner ● Brig in Bloom - Gold ● Comrie in Colour - Gold ● Crichton Lang Court Residents Group - Silver ● Dunkeld and Birnam in Bloom - Silver Gilt ● Kinnesswood in Bloom - Silver Gilt, Small Village Category Award Winner ● Muthill in Bloom - Silver Gilt.
The Beautiful Scotland competition, which is run in partnership with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), brings communities together to help clean up and beautify the places that matter to them - and recognises the efforts of volunteers across Scotland as they work to enhance their own community. All entries were assessed against the three core pillars of the Beautiful Scotland campaign - Horticultural Achievement; Environmental Responsibility and Community Participation.
Beautiful Scotland provides the opportunity for Scotland to celebrate the outstanding achievements of volunteer groups across the country and recognises the significant contribution they make in helping to improve our local environmental quality. “Perth and Kinross volunteers and council employees have worked tirelessly to ensure that the local spaces and places that they treasure are maintained to excellent standards. I would like to commend them on their efforts.”
In 2017 the campaign in Scotland reaches its 51st year.
Beautiful Scotland is managed by Keep Scotland Beautiful, a member of the RHS Bloom Federation.
Entrants are judged by a team of expert volunteer judges on their year-round achievements.
Keep Scotland Beautiful is the charity that campaigns, acts and educates on a range of local, national and global environmental issues to change behaviour and improve the quality of people’s lives and the places they care for.
