Awards New Entrant Award

GDT is a community led organisation. Its aims are to improve the health and wellbeing, wealth, economy and environment of their community. They are based at the Life Centre in Glenboig. They run a community cafe which is supported by volunteers, and a toddler group and senior care programme. They have an active walking club and also have a community garden team that help pensioners with their gardens throughout the year.

They have recently started work on a community garden. This provides opportunities for voluntary work as well as placements for children and adults with additional support needs.

In 2023, the group won the Beautiful Scotland New Entrant Award: The group is at the heart of the community and has gone from strength to strength. It now engages with all sectors of the village, creating a real sense of belonging. Key areas of the village are enhanced with horticultural displays, and there are two gardens for the community to enjoy and benefit from. A loch provides a peaceful setting where wildlife thrives.
