Trophy winners

We are absolutely thrilled once again to have won national accolades for the work done by our volunteers and partners! At the 2017 Beautiful Scotland Awards, which were announced on 7 September, not only did we win one of the much-coveted Gold medals, but we also carried off  the trophy as winners of the Large Town category*.

Our Chairman John Summers says he couldn't be more proud of Perth. "I'd like to thank our amazing volunteers, who turn out all year round to keep our Fair City looking so good. And we could not have achieved this success without the support of Perth & Kinross Council's Community Greenspace and Community Payback teams, staff at the Westbank plant nursery and the local residents, businesses and community groups who help us as supporters, suppliers, sponsors and partners in action. Our grateful thanks to them all.

"These national Awards reflect the work done by volunteers in villages, towns and cities right across the country. There are no fewer than 48 local ‘bloom’ groups active in Perth & Kinross alone, and we were delighted that several were also celebrated at the 2017 Awards. There were Gold medals for Brig in Bloom and Comrie in Colour; Silver Gilts for Dunkeld & Birnam in Bloom, Muthill in Bloom and Kinnesswood in Bloom (who also won the Small Village category). The recently-established Crichton Lang Court Residents Group also won a well deserved Silver medal.

 “I'd like to congratulate not only the other medal and trophy winners, but also all the local groups, large and small, who do such a 'blooming' marvellous job of keeping Scotland beautiful."

*The Beautiful Scotland Award categories are set by electoral roll size, so Perth falls into the ‘Large Town’ category.
