Clean-up squad tackle town’s litter
Volunteers from environmental group Pride of Place organised the Coupar Angus contribution to the Clean Up Scotland campaign at the weekend.
Nearly 20 people covered most of the town in a concerted effort of litter picking before enjoying refreshments donated by Greggs.
Organisers said the amount of litter in the town is down, which they say reflects the good work of Paul, the town cleaner, and the efforts of Coupar Angus residents to improve their environment.
However, dog poo bags were still found in a number of areas, including by the burn where the improvement work is taking place, and cigarette ends continue to be discarded by many smokers.
A spokepserson for the group said:“This litter pick was not a one-off.
“Coupar Angus Pride of Place will continue to support Paul in making our town a good environment to live and work in, and contribute to our chances of promoting Scotland and Perthshire by again being the best in the whole of Britain in our category of this year’s Britain in Bloom competition.”
This Saturday Pride of Place will be holding a fundraising cafe in the Y on Union Street from 10am until 2pm.
Their annual plant sale takes place on Saturday, May 27, in the town hall.
