GFAA were delighted to receive this email from Steven Shaw of Aberdeen City Council.
We had some great news yesterday from the Beautiful Scotland Awards. We’re winners!
I’m chuffed to bits for everyone involved in our campaign. Thank you for all your help and support. Your film showcasing your group worked a treat and our success is very much yours to enjoy too. You can be very proud of helping the city achieve these awards.
Gold Medal for the city but more significantly we also won the Wright Award for Sustainability. This is for our work on wetlands, woodlands and wildlife. This is great news and does show we are on the right track with our more natural approach to the management of some of our green spaces.
Thank you again for all the help you give to our campaign. It means so much to the team and I to have your continued support. We’ve obviously had s a demanding and challenging 18 months so this is lovely recognition for everyone’s hard work.
I’m looking forward to working with you further and enjoying more success in 2022.
