Perth judged for Beautiful Scotland Awards

Planting at the Leisure Pool June 2015

Two independent judges visited Perth this week to assess the City for the 2015 Beautiful Scotland Awards. Over the past year, our volunteers  and  supporters have dedicated their time to making the Fair City a beautiful place to live, work and visit. Success in the prestigious Beautiful Scotland Awards would be a reward for their hard work – and a major boost for Perth itself.

The judges assessed the City under three themes - Horticultural Achievement, Environmental Responsibility and Community Participation. In the Awards, communities can win Gold, Silver Gilt, Silver or Bronze Medals in their categories and the awards will be announced at a ceremony, hosted by Perth & Kinross Council, at Perth Concert Hall in September. The overall winner receives the much sought-after Rosebowl Trophy, and there are discretionary awards for outstanding performance in areas such as biodiversity, tourism and community involvement. Selected winning communities will be nominated for entry into the Royal Horticultural Society’s 2016 Britain in Bloom final.

 Our Chairman John Summers said:  “Our volunteers and partners have done so much for Perth this year. We are out all year round, in all weathers, planting floral displays, helping with community projects and tackling problems like litter. We were over the moon when we won a Gold Medal at last year’s Britain in Bloom awards, and we’d love to match that in the Scottish competition this year.”

The Beautiful Scotland judges  toured Perth during the morning of 29 July, accompanied by Beautiful Perth Trustees. They were greeted at the end of the tour by Provost Liz Grant, who hosted a lunch at the Royal George Hotel attended by the judges along with our volunteers, sponsors, partners and supporters.

The Beautiful Scotland Awards are run by Keep Scotland Beautiful, Scotland’s leading charity for local environmental issues.  More information can be found here
