Birds and Bees

Our local traders and museum did us proud recently in helping to promote the theme of Birds and Bees in their shop windows and outside their properties. Thank you for helping to support Burgh Beautiful in our recent Keep Scotland Beautiful Competition. If anyone has any additional photographs then please get in touch and we'll add them to the website.

Beautiful Banners at the Station 

Beautiful banners have been designed and created by the Linlithgow branch of the Embroiderers' Guild after being commissioned by Burgh Beautiful and paid for by the ScotRail Culture Fund. The banners can be seen in Linlithgow station beside the stairs to the Edinburgh bound platform.

These new banners are truly sensational, celebrating a few of the unique characteristics of the town – the Black Bitch story, the town’s historic architecture and the prominent and distinctive spire of St Michael’s Parish Church, all with flowers interwoven to acknowledge the work of Burgh Beautiful.

Why not go along to see them for yourself at the station.

Anti-litter Poster Competition

Well done all those in Bridgend and Linlithgow schools who submitted posters for Burgh Beautiful's anti-litter campaign. 

It was a very difficult task for the panel of 7 to choose the winners but the following were considered particularly eye-catching and included local information or humour.

Congratulations to the following who will receive book tokens sponsored by Burgh Beautiful

  Amy Finch (anonymised code 4.25) from  Springfield  Primary ( P6B)           Ist    

  Toni & Heather (1.4), Bridgend Primary (P6/7)                                               2nd            

  Alfie Wardrop  (4.21), Springfield (P1B)                                                          3rd      

The selection from each of the schools can be seen throughout the summer holidays in the entrance windows of the Library at the Vennel. Thereafter it is intended that the winners and others receiving commendation will be distributed elsewhere in the town.

Thank you children and those others who have been involved with this campaign. The posters communicate important messages for us all in helping to keep our town looking as clean and welcoming as possible.
