Welcome to  CGI Scotland Online!

WE STAND AGAINST litter ~ dog fouling ~ fly tipping ~ apathy ~graffiti ~ invasive species ~ pollution ~ overbuilding on flood plains ~ harming our wildlife ~ glass shards in the river ~ negativity ~ vandalism ~ plastic bags in trees!

WE STAND FOR cleaner & greener Dunipace & Denny ~ community spirit ~ rolling up our sleeves ~ murals ~ biodiversity ~ team work ~ open spaces ~ walking & cycling ~ positive attitudes ~ energetic solutions ~ footpath improvements ~ healthy active adults & kids!

Community Green Initiative has been involved in community clean ups and path refurbishment issues since 2006; in June 2008 we officially formed as a constituted body and have expanded our interests to include invasive species, murals, green education, Green Dog Walkers campaign, carbon footprint reduction and more.

As our work has increased quickly to encompass the whole of Falkirk district and our Green Dog Walkers campaign is now reaching out into England and other parts of the UK, we hope that many will enjoy the opportunity to connect with us through this website.

Please stop by often, we will have new information monthly and our newsletter NEW LEAF NEWS will be available here each quarter. (When you visit our newsletter page please do sign up as a free subscriber – we operate mostly through funding so it helps us to be able to document the numbers of our readers.)

CGI AGM, including a celebration of Michelle's contribution to CGI, is on 23 October 2014 7pm Heritage Rooms, Milton Row, Dunipace RSVP jweir77@btinternet.com

 

It is with deep sorrow and regret that we have to tell you all that we lost our dear friend Michelle on Friday 18th April. Michelle passed away in Forth Valley Royal Hospital as a result of complications following a routine operation. There was a celebration of Michelle's life on Sat 26th April at Delta Art Studios Larbert. As you can imagine all members of our group are totally devastated by this loss. We will write more when we can and are planning a New Leaf News edition that will commemorate Michelle.
