As part of their John Muir award, Primary 7 pupils from Kirn Primary School did a beach clean to support Envirokirn. They collected 4 bags of rubbish. Well done everyone!
Founded in 2002 when Kirn was very run down, EnviroKirn has improved the amenities and enhanced the village greatly in these few years.
The group works closely with the local Council and schools, as well as local charities, to help increase youngsters' awareness of the benefits of joining in community enterprises.
The groups' income stems from an annual appeal to the villagers which provides finance for projects.
The Committee includes a local Councillor, a Community Police Officer and a primary school eco teacher.
The members efforts combine to give everyone a Pride of Place in Kirn.
