The environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful is calling for community groups in East Ayrshire to take part in their 2020 initiatives.

The projects, Beautiful Scotland and It’s Your Neighbourhood, are run by the charity in partnership with Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).

The idea is for local communities to shout about all of the good work that they’ve been doing to improve and enhance their local places and spaces.

Catherine Gee, Operations Director at Keep Scotland Beautiful said: “I hope that community groups from all across Scotland will take part in the Its Your Neighbourhood and Beautiful Scotland initiatives this year.

“These are fantastic opportunities to recognise, support and reward the enthusiasm and drive of volunteers who take pride in their local areas and make significant improvements to the places and spaces they love.

“We were overwhelmed with the efforts of everyone that took part in 2019 and very much look forward to helping even more groups throughout 2020.”

Participants will benefit from access to support, encouragement and national recognition of their hard work throughout the year, as well as links to other communities facing similar challenges.
