The group’s aim is to enhance the environment through the endeavours of local volunteers. The ethos of the group can be summed up as ‘Let’s just do it’. Brighter Bothwell is a team effort and, from its outset, has sought to involve local people, businesses, schools, churches, other community groups, local authority staff and others who share its aspirations.
The group organises litter picks, provides colourful floral displays, plants bulbs, weeds, prunes and plants. It encourages dog owners to pick up poo and raises awareness of cigarette butt discarding. The group also encourages schools to include planting and biodiversity when working on their green eco flag awards.
