PoP are delighted to say that the group were awarded a GOLD certificate in the Beautiful Scotland Awards last night, and were in the top five scorers in the whole competition which includes everything from cities to wee villages. Well done to all the team, the many, many supporters individual and group, and thanks too to all the businesses that also give support financially or in kind. It's not just pretty flowers but all the community effort and involvement that makes Coupar Angus achieve above its weight, but a winner in so many ways!
Well done too to Crichton Lang Court Residents, who won a SILVER-GILT certificate, one step nearer to gold than before, and recognition of their great work.
