It's official - Uddingston is beautiful
It's not often that a town receives a gold medal for being beautiful, but that's exactly what happened to Uddingston last week. At the Beautiful Scotland Awards, the Uddingston Pride community group celebrated victory in a competition to determine which Scottish town is the cleanest and most attractively presented.
The Beautiful Scotland Awards are organised by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful, in association with the Royal Horticultural Society. Uddingston's triumph was based on three categories - Horticultural Achievement, Environmental Responsibility and Community Participation.
Uddingston may now be chosen to represent Scotland in the RHS Britain in Bloom 2017 awards. Hopefully that'll lead to another award announcement on this page in the coming months...
