Pride in Place
We were in Forfar this evening giving a presentation to other community groups on Pride in Place. It is now widely recognised that levels of happiness and well-being are directly linked to the quality of the environment in which you live. We have become passionate about keeping our little village, clean, safe and litter free. When we were out litter picking a couple of weeks ago several people stopped and told us how much they would like to live in a community like East Haven where people know each other and care about the environment. I always respond by letting people know that it wasn't always like this and that many people didn't know each other before we started working on our villlage improvments. However, gardening and litter picking really bring people toegther in such a positive way. Such simple things to do but so worthwhile.
