2021 Awards RHS Scotland Award for Overcoming Adversity

East Haven Together is committed to developing a strong and sustainable community. People of all ages and all abilities are encouraged to work together on a range of activities aimed at protecting and conserving the local and natural heritage of the village and marine environment. In normal times, community gardening sessions are held every week providing opportunities to build friendships, share skills and enjoy the outdoors. Increasing biodiversity, protecting local wildlife and maintaining a litter free environment is at the heart of everything the group does. East Haven is a great place to live and visit.

In 2021, East Haven Together won the RHS Scotland Award for Overcoming Adversity: East Haven Togetherneeded to address several tricky challenges in the last 18 months, all requiring a planned and consistent approach to see the issues through to their successful conclusion. This required a lot of hard work, determination and tenacity, and the competing demands of these different challenges needed to be managed. At the same time the group managed to maintain the standards of their other ongoing work in the village.

In 2018, East Haven Together was one of five groups representing Scotland in the RHS Britain in Bloom UK finals. The group was presented with a Gold medal certificate and also won the Coastal (under 12,000) category. Wendy Murray from the group was presented with a Community Champion Award.
