Cambuslang residents are being urged to give up a spare hour or two this weekend, to help with a litter pick in the Holmhills Woods Community Park.
The park is bordered by Greenlees Road, Langlea Road and Western Road.
The litter pick will take place on Sunday, June 7, from 2-4pm, to improve its appearance, and those interested should meet at the Langlea Road entrance.
Organiser of the clean-up is Michelle Farmer, who has been working with South Lanarkshire Council on having overgrown plants cut back, and improving the park in general.
She hopes that the community involvement in the area will lead to the creation of a Friends of Holmhills Park, with similar groups having been formed for Cambuslang and Overtoun Parks.
Michelle said: “We would love anybody who uses the park to come along if they can spare a couple of hours on Sunday.
“It’s been a brilliant park since it’s been opened up after all the work that’s been done by the council and the community payback team.
“Last week, I was out with the community payback team, and one man who lives across the road from the park came over and said he had noticed a massive difference in the last few months.
“All the dead leaves have been taken off and that’s allowed more air to get through the trees, and people have said they definitely feel a lot safer now it’s been cut back and opened up, which is great to hear. We want to get as many people into the park, rather than scaring them away!
“He was saying that because it’s much nicer there, he’s put a bird box up, and there’s now some wrens in it, which is great.
“He has done a couple of other bits and bobs, and he will be joining the Friends of Holmhills Park. He wants to do surveys of the different species that are living there, to find out what we have there, and encourage more of them to breed.”
