We were delighted to receive a level 5 – OUTSTANDING award this year in the RHS Keep Scotland Beautiful ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ Scheme. The scheme is a community gardening campaign aiming to get local people making lasting changes to their local community.
We have been involved with the scheme for a few years now. In 2014 we received a Bronze Award, and we got tips and suggestions on what we at Watch US Grow could do to help improve our score and other ways to help our local community. In 20154 we our grading increased to a level 4 – Thriving.
We are so pleased that all the hard work of out staff, volunteers and students has been recognised. Angela, James and Ann headed off to the Albert Halls in Stirling, joining other groups who took part. We had great day, with inspiring tales from other community groups, lovely lunch and good company. Thanks for the kind comments from our assessor Robin and well done everyone in the Watch US Grow garden – your hard work earned us this fantastic award- you should be very proud!
