Inch Community Litter-Picks Now Being Held Every Month
Following the success of recent volunteer-led litter picks in the Inch housing estate, Inch Community Association (ICA) has now decided to hold them regularly every month. In the words of one of the event’s organisers, Witold Bobelak: “There’s far too much rubbish lying around in the streets of the Inch and local people are getting really tired of it.”
Local resident, Tommy Walls of Walter Scott Avenue, agreed: “The rubbish has been piling up for weeks, ever since the February storms, with a lot of rubbish seeming to get blown out of the bins and into the streets. My wife and I were just on the point of going outside to start clearing some of it away ourselves when the Inch House team showed up. It’s fantastic to see local people doing something for the community. We really appreciate their efforts.”
From now on (weather permitting) the litter-picks will be held on the last Saturday of every month (11am – 1pm), with the next ones being held on:
Saturday, 30/04 (meet in front of Scotmid store in Walter Scott Avenue at 11am)
Saturday, 28/05 (meet in front of Day-today store in Glenvarloch Crescent at 11am)
New volunteers are more than welcome! Make sure to wear old clothes, we’ll supply the equipment and the bags for litter.
You can register at email@example.com or just turn up on the day. This event is not suitable for unaccompanied children.
