Latest development in The Children’s Wood/North Kelvin meadow campaign

This is the latest development in The Children’s Wood/North Kelvin meadow campaign, indicating how much momentum it has gained in the last year! Do go on the site and cast your vote for our hard working and inspiring local community activists Emily and Douglas. What we are all fighting for is not just a local but a worldwide issue – working to connect children and their parents with each other in the context of the Great Outdoors!

The Children's Wood and North Kelvin Meadow

We are delighted to learn today that Emily Cutts of the Children’s Wood and Douglas Peacock of the North Kelvin Meadow Campaign have been jointly short-listed in the Observer newspaper’s Ethical Awards “unsung local hero” category.  This is a shortlist of around 5 out of 300 entries nationwide.  It is a very welcome recognition of all the hard work they have put in.  They have of course immediately said that it is a team effort by the whole community, and so it is, but Emily and Douglas have by far the strongest vision and perseverance of us all.

The nation’s “unsung local hero” will be chosen from the shortlist by popular vote from now to 24th May.  To vote for Emily and Douglas, click the big button below, and to see the shortlist follow this link.
