At yesterday’s Keep Scotland Beautiful seminar, Cumbernauld Community Memorial Peace Garden received an It’s Your Neighbourhood award, following a visit from assessors earlier in the year. The award was presented at the second highest level of ‘Thriving’ and represents the remarkable transformation of formerly abandoned ground into a commemorative community garden. We’re delighted that this award has further recognised the hard work of all those participating groups and individuals over the last few years.
Earlier this evening we also recognised the participation of groups and individuals who supported this year’s Beautiful Scotland entry, as well as contributors to the development of the Peace Garden project. Copies of the award certificates were distributed to local organisations including Sanctuary Cumbernauld, the Rotary Club of Cumbernauld, and Watch Us Grow.
