WHILE Stonehaven did not enter this year’s Beautiful Scotland competition, Horizon’s continuing efforts to improve the town for the benefit of all were recognised by the organisation.
Horizon were awarded a certificate of recognition, in an awards ceremony at the weekend, hosted by Beautiful Scotland, which saw 45 groups from all over Scotland presented with awards and certificates for their efforts to improve, enhance and protect biodiversity and the places they care for and work and live in.
East Lothian group North Berwick in Bloom and Moray group Forres in Bloom were joint winners of the night’s top award, the prestigious Rosebowl.
Meanwhile Horizon feature on the Beautiful Scotland website, with a glowing description of the volunteers’ endeavours.
Phil Carr’s garden at the boardwalk was one of the highlights of Stonehaven’s entry into Beautiful Scotland, which places environmental efforts at the forefront, with its vision of a clean, green, sustainable Scotland.
