Enter It's Your Neighbourhood
Registration for the 2020 It's Your Neighbourhood initiative is now open! Click here to register. Open until end of April.
You’ll find a lot of the information you need on this website including Entrant Support material in our Resources section here.
For 2020, we're delighted to announce that we have two optional themes, to focus activities and celebration events on.
It’s the 20th anniversary of Keep Scotland Beautiful this year, so we will be encouraging communities and local authorities to create displays and to be imaginative with the Keep Scotland Beautiful logo. For example, this could be planting a bed with the four colours of our logo, with the words ’20 years; Keep Scotland Beautiful’ around it (see attached image for an idea).
The other theme is Scotland’s official ‘Year of Coasts and Waters’ which Keep Scotland Beautiful will be supporting across our programmes. Again, anything creative that fits with that too.
We would love to hear your plans and share your projects and stories of how you celebrate this theme. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org throughout the year so we can share your progress through our social media channels - you never know who you might inspire!
For those new to the campaign, or thinking about taking part, please read the related documents below which outline the benefits of taking part, who can enter, what kind of projects It's Your Neighbourhood groups carry out, and how to get started in It's Your Neighbourhood.
It's Your Neighbourhood description
You are an It’s Your Neighbourhood project if your group doesn’t wish to take part in a competition, but would like support and recognition for the work being carried out in the community. Usually an It’s Your Neighbourhood project relates to a specific area, such as a park, a nursing home, a tenants and residents association area or an allotment. It’s Your Neighbourhood project groups often work with Beautiful Scotland entry groups and add value to the entire community entry. You do not have to be linked to a Beautiful Scotland group to enter though.
The It's Your Neighbourhood initiative is an ideal opportunity for volunteer-led community groups which are interested in cleaning up and greening up the local area, whether that is the street where they live, a derelict space on their estate or the grounds around the local community centre. It is an inclusive, FREE, non-competitive scheme which is about bringing members of the community together to make a positive change to the place they live, work or spend their leisure time.
