Hamilton Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

The Both­well Road Ac­tion Group (BRAG) led a com­mu­nity clean-up in the park last week.

Vol­un­teers young and old, armed with lit­ter pick­ers and bags, spent last Tues­day (April 3) lift­ing rub­bish and var­i­ous other items that had been dumped in the park.

BRAG’S Pe­ter Mcghee said: “a big thanks to all our vol­un­teers, the team from South La­nark­shire Coun­cil Coun­try­side Rangers and Out­let Play re­source for all their help .

“A spe­cial thanks to Greggs in the New Cross Cen­tre in Hamil­ton for their do­na­tions for all the vol­un­teers.

“We filled 16 bags and one box of glass, and col­lected one gas can­is­ter, a scooter and a scaf­fold­ing pole.”
