Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, recently attended a cross-party Parliamentary event in the Scottish Parliament about nuisance calls organised by the consumer organisation Which? to highlight concerns about nuisance calls.
Roseanna has welcomed the news from Keep Scotland Beautiful that MacRosty Park in Crieff has been named as a Winner in the Green Flag Award Scheme.
Speaking today Ms Cunningham said:
“There are less than 1600 parks, cemeteries, universities, shopping centres and community gardens in the UK judged to have met the high standard needed to receive the Green Flag Award or the Green Flag Community Award.
“The Green Flag Awards are judged against eight strict criteria, including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement and has become the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK.
“So, I am delighted that MacRosty Park in my constituency has been added to this list which recognises the best green spaces in the country.
“Massive congratulations to everyone who has worked hard to secure this commendation.”
Roseanna Cunningham MSP recently visited Letham Sports Club and met with some of the club’ representatives with whom she discussed their long term aspirations for developing youth football in the area and what they are offering to the local community.
