Keep Penicuik Tidy

Penicuik residents and Groups are again being asked to take part in the National Spring Clean in conjunction with the Keep Scotland Beautiful Campaign which runs from 1st April through to 31st May 2013
http://springclean.keepscotlandbeautiful.org/

The aim is to try and make Penicuik a more pleasant place to live in.

3 Events have been planned

Beeslack Woods Saturday 6th April 2013 meet in Tesco car park at 9.30am

Lowries Den Saturday 27th April 2013 meet in Penicuik Estate top car park 9.30am

Cuiken Glen Sunday 5th May 2013 meet in YMCA car park 9.30am


All equipment will be provided along with refreshments. Even an hour of your time would make such a big difference.

Nearly all schools in Penicuik are organising their own events to try and educate their pupils to the continuing problem.

For more information

Call Chris Leavy on 01968 677181 or Mobile 07842 663987

Another disappointing response from the residents of Penicuik today. 12 turned up! Thanks once again to Admin Andy who has never missed an event. Despite the apathy we managed to half fill the skip provided by MDC . @tamthebam, we also tackled the area at the corner of Tesco/Kwikfit. If anyone else would,like to suggest an area but not actually turn up to help out.......... Just let me know and we will see what we can do

Well, despite the low turnout I still think we made quite a difference. My biggest challenge was getting the Tesco trolley up the embankment from the water. Luckily as I was approaching the top I spotted a fellow picker who gave me a hand up with it before I collapsed Smile
