Dear green place

Vol­un­teers wanted to help clean park

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Michelle has been help­ing to im­prove the ap­pear­ance of the park af­ter she planted some wild flower seeds, do­nated by Gerry Devaney from South La­nark­shire Coun­cil, which will hope­fully flower in the next few weeks.

An­other re­cent im­prove­ment in the park has seen an open hole which was miss­ing a man­hole cover be­ing re­placed, and at present the coun­cil are set to in­ves­ti­gate a path that dis­ap­pears into dirt, and Michelle hopes this will soon be at­tended to.

Michelle hopes that the vol­un­teers will make a big dif­fer­ence this week­end.

She said: “There’s a lot of crisp packets and drinks cans that have got stuck in the un­der­growth, and been there for years.

“We’re look­ing to re­move th­ese and give the place a good, proper clean up.

“Once that’s been done, the coun­cil will be able to give a good as­sess­ment of the park and build on what’s there.

“We’ll have South La­nark­shire coun­try­side rangers along on the day, while the coun­cil will be pro­vid­ing us with lit­ter pick­ers and black bags to put the rub­bish in.

“I’ve spo­ken with some lo­cal Cubs, so I hope they are able to come along on the day. Any­one who wants to help will be made very wel­come.”
