A BIG shout out has gone across the town for the Big Help Out on May 8.

We are not entering the Beautiful Scotland competition this year. But as it was so good to see the town looking its best, Horizon would like to promote the Great Stonehaven Spring Clean 2023 to brighten the town for the summer months.

This initiative will take place on the public holiday, Monday, May 08, 2023 and appropriately coincides with the King’s Coronation weekend and ‘The Big Help Out‘. The aim of the Big Help Out is to use volunteering to bring communities together and create a lasting volunteering legacy from the Coronation Weekend. 

Timing is good with the Royal British Legion Stonehaven’s re-dedication centennial event of the War Memorial on Saturday May 20 and also the Feein’ market, Saturday, Jun 03, 2023. It would be great to have the town looking its best – you can be a big help.

Various volunteer groups have already indicated they are up for the Big Help Out – doing jobs such as a litter pick by the Dunnottar Woods Association, the Men’s Shed maintaining the Community Garden, the Rotary tidying the promenade and Plastic Free Stonehaven / Paws on Plastic orchestrating a beach clean.

And there are lots of opportunities for individuals to do their own wee bit to make sure our town is looking its best for summer. 

Let’s get out there and fly your flag for the Big Help Out – and help Spring Clean Stonehaven.
