Kris is eco hero of the month

A Monifieth eco-warrior has been awarded a special honour for her efforts by a national environmental campaign.

Kris Auchinleck, secretary of Monifieth Eco-Force, has been named ‘Hero of the Month’ by Clean Up Scotland, the mass-engagement campaign run by Keep Scotland Beautiful.

The award is in recognition of her efforts in keeping Monifieth beach tidy with clean-ups held on the first Saturday of every month.

Kris said: “I have made Monifieth my home town. I’ve lived here longer than I have lived anywhere and brought up my children here.

“My aim with the help of Monifieth community and the visitors to Monifieth is to enrich the natural beauty of Monifieth Beach by keeping it litter free for children, dogs, walkers, surfers, bathers and sun worshippers.”

Graeme Dey MSP said: “The work that Kris and the Eco Force Group do in seeking to make Monifieth an attractive place to live in as well as visit is to be commended.”
