Taking part in the 2019 #bigspringclean

Our latest cleanup event at the park was a huge success. Not only did a number of new faces arrive, but the amount of rubbish in the main body of the park was really low!

That meant we could tackle some of the more overlooked corners of the park with highlights including two vacuum cleaners being pulled out of the bushes.

With thanks to the Friends at Burdiehouse Burn for promoting this event to their members, it was great to have a number of volunteers from the local area taking part.

Our next event is taking place on Saturday 25th May, from 9.30am – 11.30am. We’ll be picking up our paintbrushes to give the new orienteering posts a coat of varnish, as well as tiding up some of the other signage at the park. See you there?
