Well done to the Kirriemuir Out of School Care Club based at Northmuir Primary who have earned a Bronze Pride in Place (PiP) award.

They received their certificate from Jennifer Anderson, PiP communities officer after carrying out a range of activities, including litter picks and recycling as well as raising awareness of Pride in Place in their community.

The children will be working towards their silver award after the summer break.

Angus Council’s PiP Recognition Scheme is a citizenship award for schools, school groups, youth clubs and organisations that acknowledges activities involving young people taking a pride in their local area.

Activities earn points towards a gold, silver or bronze award and activities cover a range of topics including – tackling litter, recycling and waste management, outdoor learning, improving school grounds, contributing to community space, learning about community issues, and being involved with community people and business.

Any school, group or organisation interested in joining the scheme and making a difference to their community can contact the Communities team at PiPAWard@angus.gov.uk
