Coronation Communities Competition

Congratulations to Carnbo who were 1 of 10 runners up in the Coronation Communities competition organised by the Eden Project to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III. The village near Kinross received a highly commended award because of their heart-warming story.

Eden Project chief purpose officer Peter Stewart LVO said: “As we approach a momentous weekend for the whole nation, we’re proud to be honouring the streets, neighbourhoods and community groups that go the extra mile to make life better in their local areas. “From groups going all out to green up and clean up their streets, to neighbours supporting each other through the toughest of times and roads coming together for events reducing loneliness and isolation, these outstanding communities are a shining example of what can be achieved when we come together. Whether it’s through organising a Coronation Big Lunch, an offer of a cup of tea or a knock on a door, we hope that these communities will inspire many more people across the country to get to know their neighbours better and see what can grow from that first spark of connection.”

Local residents celebrated their win with a “Big Lunch” complete with poetry readings and love music.
