There were excellent results for Gazette country entrants into this year’s Keep Scotland Beautiful competition it was announced last week.
On Friday it was revealed at a special ceremony in Aberdeen that Carnoustie, Monifieth and Broughty Ferry had done well in the coastal towns category.
Monifieth Eco Force received a silver medal for their efforts and Broughty Ferry in Bloom was awarded a silver gilt medal.
In addition to their silver medal, Carnoustie Community Council was awarded the Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society Trophy for the War Memorial.
Community Council vice-president Ed Oswald said: “The judges commented that Carnoustie has made huge progress in the campaign, adding colour and vibrancy to the town’s existing attractions.
“To be commended are the stunning War Memorial and the conservation work at the Golf Course.
“The community council thanks the people of Carnoustie. We have had great feedback and support from sponsors, volunteers, businesses, shopkeepers, individuals and organisations, including the local branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland who have been a great help.
“We are already planning for next year and would encourage more volunteers to come and help us build on our success.”
He added: “Angus Council gardeners year after year produce a stunning display at the War Memorial and this year was no exception.
“The community council has worked closely with the council throughout this year and this relationship can only get stronger as we strive to make Carnoustie a better and more beautiful place.”
