Milngavie in Bloom Celebrate 'Milngavie Week'
Thelma Will, Secretary of Milngavie in Bloom, said:
"Our BEE-Line trail for children went from the Station area to Gavin’s Mill. The children were given a question sheet and had to find the answers on little signs strategically placed in the planters and gardens winding their way through the village to the Mill. We thought this would be a fun way to educate children about bees as part of this year’s campaign.Volunteer Diane Black had knitted lots of tiny little bees which were given to passers-by for a small donation."
Milngavie in Bloom (MiB) aims to promote, through the participation of the community, the advancement of environmental protection and improvement in the area. Providing and encouraging displays of flowers, shrubs, trees and landscapes in areas which are visible to the public, the group aims to educate the public about the natural environment through the development of environmental programmes. MiB seeks to protect, preserve and enhance the environmental amenities of Milngavie, with the aim of improving the conditions of life for the residents, for example, by promoting the prevention and control of litter, and promoting high standards of cleanliness in the streets and other public places. Visit Clean-Up Scotland for more information on how to organise your own clean-up.
'Milngavie Week' was brought back to life last year by Milngavie Community Development Trust after an absence of ten years, with a large number of activities, led by local organisations and individuals.
This year's Beautiful Scotland theme is 'birds, bees and trees'. In this section, you'll find information to help you with your entry into Beautiful Scotland, resources to help your group and to promote and celebrate your achievements, and inspiring case studies.
