Celebrating Cumbernauld’s Environment

On Thursday 11th December, on a wet and wintry night, local Cumbernauld groups gathered at Dullatur Golf Club for the, now annual, Beautiful Cumbernauld Award Ceremony. The event, organised and delivered by Cumbernauld Environmental Society, recognised those groups from the area who played a role in this year’s Keep Scotland Beautiful campaign, where Cumbernauld picked up a Silver Award.

Organisations were presented with their own copy of the Beautiful Scotland award certificate by Gordon Wright, President of Cumbernauld Rotary Club. Copies of the It’s Your Neighbourhood certificate, previously awarded to Cumbernauld Community Memorial Peace Garden, were also presented to a wide number of local organisations who have worked to transform an overgrown area of land in Greenfaulds into a colourful community garden in commemoration of the centenary of the First World War.

Adam Smith, Cumbernauld Environmental Society spokesman, said “Despite the unfavourable weather, we were delighted with the attendance at the 2014 Beautiful Cumbernauld Award Ceremony. This event served to recognise the invaluable support, and enduring community spirit, of voluntary organisations working throughout Cumbernauld to improve our town. Pictures from the ceremony will be included in our 2015 Beautiful Scotland entry, where we hope Cumbernauld can continue working towards that elusive Gold Award”.
