Best Community Initiative – and the Public Vote goes to – ‘The Bailies of Bennachie’

Last night GreenPower staff were joined by our guests at the RSPB Nature Of Scotland Awards Dinner at the EICC.  Over 400 people attended this prestigious event which celebrates the inspirational work communities and individuals are doing to protect Scotland’s natural heritage.

The GreenPower sponsored ‘Best Community Initiative’ was decided on a Public Vote. The six projects in the running for the Award having been previously shortlisted by the judges.

The winning project ‘50 Years of the Bailies of Bennachie’, is a volunteer charity that has existed for 50 years with their aim being to help to conserve and improve public access to Bennachie, a range of hills in Aberdeenshire near Inverurie.  Though not particularly high the peak that stands out the most visually is called Mither Tap it dominates the skyline from several viewpoints.

Our congratulations go to all those involved with the winning project.
