It's Our Neighbourhood!
A couple of us attended the 'It's Our Neighbourhood' awards in Stirling today. Run by Beautiful Scotland these awards recognise communities that are trying to do something to improve their neighbourhoods and make them better places to live. We were humbled and inspired by the work that is going on all over Scotland. Ordinary people from all corners of our cities, towns and villages are doing their little bit (or in many cases big bit) to improve all aspects of Scottish life. Like the residents in East Haven, people find that working together on community projects builds relationships, improves health and strengthens communities. We have returned with lots of new ideas and will arrange a get-together with everybody in a couple of weeks time to decide what our priorities are for 2015!
