Helpers needed to clean up Milngavie

MILNGAVIE In Bloom needs volunteers to help them carry out a Big Spring Clean on Friday, April 19 in Milngavie.

The event from 6.30pm to 8.30pm has been organised in co-ordination with the Beautiful Scotland Campaign and everyone will meet outside Gavin’s Mill next to Tesco supermarket.

Rona Macleod, a committee member of Milngavie In Bloom also helps to run the Clean Sweep branch of the organisation with Margaret McBain, she said: “We had an excellent turn-out last year and we hope that as many people come along this year - hopefully more.

“Helpers will be given a litter pick, collection bags and a tabard but they need to wear strong gloves and weatherproof shoes and bring a waterproof jacket - just in case!

“Members of the local scout group are going to help as well as young people from Milngavie Youth Centre.

“Children are also welcome to help but they must be supervised by adults.”
