Herald Society Awards!

We really can't believe that we have been shortlisted for the prestigous Herald Society Awards (Community Project of the Year). The award is based on the work we undertook in the year up to the 30th June 2014. Of course this included many of our major projects such as rebuilding Eric's bridge, planting trees, our Exhibition, creation of heritage bunting, community gardens etc. Importantly though, it is about how we developed as a community and led the changes and improvements we wanted to make. We extended the boundaries of our small community to embrace a much larger community across Scotland, the UK and further afield. We learned many things from our experiences and hopefully we can inspire other communities across Scotland to believe that it is possible to take control of your own community and make it a better place to live and visit.
