Brighter Bothwell's motto is "Let's just do it". If the group sees local areas needing attention, the team of volunteers sets about carrying out improvements. This includes litter picking, bulb planting, wildflower sowing and practical campaigning to reduce dog fouling. The members encourage community participation, environmental responsibility, biodiversity and eco-friendliness.
