Overcoming Adversity plaque 2017

Overcoming Adversity Award


Linlithgow has won:

  1. The ‘Gold’ award, one of three awarded in the ‘Medium Town’ category – the other Gold awards in the category went to Cupar and Haddington.
  2. The trophy (cup and certificate) for being the best ‘Medium Town’ – so we got a higher score than Haddington which actually won the Best Town Award in the UK RHS Britain in Bloom finals in 2016!
  3. The special RHS Award (glass trophy and certificate) for Overcoming Adversity (for our ‘Bye Bye Campaign).  Thanks in particular to Burgh Beautiful member Ian Orr whose idea it was!

An enormous "Thank You" is due to everyone involved in preparing for the competition including the local traders who decorated their windows (see photographs below). A special thanks goes to those Burgh Beautiful members who washed planters, swept pavements and weeded areas not usually tended by Burgh Beautiful. Actions above and beyond the call of duty.
