Stevenson Encourages Constituents To Take Part In ‘It's Your Community’ Scheme

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson is appealing to his constituents to involve themselves in the ‘It’s Your Community’ scheme. Communications company, O2, is contributing to the development and sustainability of society, by enabling its customers, local people and employees to make a difference by contributing to local projects to improve constituents' local communities.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“If you could change one thing about where you live, what would it be? There are a huge range of groups and projects in Banff & Buchan, which are more than worthy of this award and I would encourage any such project to apply.

“Turning derelict land into a playground, planting trees where none grew before, turning an abandoned building into an arts centre for young people. These are all ideas for projects. 'It's Your Community ' is a new awards programme to help people come together to make a real difference to the communities in which we live.

“Awards of up to £1000 are available to local groups and individuals, for anything that you can show will benefit your community. Whatever your idea, simply fill in the form and do your best to persuade O2 . The awards themselves are administered, assessed and judged by the Conservation Foundation. If you have an idea, don't hold back - see what you can do.

“O2 wants to contribute to the development and sustainability of society, by enabling its customers, local people and employees to make a difference. The big idea behind the 'It's Your Community' programme is this: if you could do one small thing to make your community a better place, what would it be? By enabling lots of small groups to make a difference across our country the collective impact will be much greater.
