Lauder in Bloom's willow fish raise awareness of litter
One of our Beautiful Scotland groups, Lauder in Bloom has recently launched its contribution to the Year of Coast & Waters theme set for groups this year.
Ray Theedam-Parry from the group said: "Way back before everything was turned on its head, we ran several willow fish making sessions so that we could create a public display to raise awareness of the impact of litter in our streets and countryside. At last our fish are on display in the North Bed near the Scout Hall and at the entrance to the school. With the increase in use of disposable gloves and masks we are sadly finding them in our flower beds and streets too.
"Huge thanks to Lauderdale Scout Group, our Juniors and Seniors Club, Channelkirk Primary School and Lauder Primary School’s Eco Club for helping us to weave our fish made from the local willow which we harvest every year 😊
"Grateful thanks too to our growing army of Waste Warriors. Many of them were out litter picking during their allocated one hour exercise time in lockdown to help keep our town looking lovely for all of us."
Well done to all involved. Has your group celebrated the Year of Coasts and Waters? Let us know by dropping us an email.
