Registration for Beautiful Scotland and It’s Your Neighbourhood is open until April 30, see www.keepscotlandbeautiful.org for more information.

John West from Winchburgh Community Growing Group said, “Being part of the network of community groups with an interest in enhancing neighbourhoods has, particularly over the last year, given us inspiration, reassurance, recognition and a connection with others working towards the same goal."

He added: “Since we first got involved a year ago we’ve benefited from newsletters, ongoing support from the team and, in addition last year, from online networking and celebration events and helpful Q&A sessions.

"I’d encourage those looking for a wee bit of support to get involved and give it a go.

"I was invited to share a presentation last July to show how the Winchburgh Wombles launched with real Wombles going about the village.

"Our volunteers have completed 441 hours and filled 446 bags of rubbish since June 2020!"
