Community litter pick – all welcome! #takepridedundee

Further to the community litter pick last month we undertook around the Blackness Industrial Area/Hawkhill (see photo of us – right), there will be a further community litter pick arranged at Riverside Nature Park for this Sunday – 7th August – at 10am.  
 
Very grateful thanks to Tesco Riverside who are bringing volunteers to help us.
 
If you can help, please meet at the Riverside Nature Park car park.

Tackling litter and graffiti in the West End

There’s a West End Community Clean Up on Saturday 23rd July at 10am – all welcome!
 
Join the local community in a clean up to help tackle litter and graffiti in the West End.
 
Meet at the Verdant Works car park on the corner of Blinshall Street and Miln Street.
The plan is to have the Verdant Works as a starting point and then radiate out and work in the area around it.  

West End Community Clean-Up!

This afternoon, along with my councillor ward colleague Cllr Richard McCready, Environment Convener Cllr Craig Melville, Trudy Cunningham, Environment and Sustainability Officer at the University of Dundee, community representatives, members of the Bonnie Dundee group and others, we took part in a clean-up of the area around Greenmarket and collected bags (and bags!) of rubbish.    A couple of photos below!

Leaving aside the “keeping our environment clean” message that Trudy got across on tonight’s STV news, it was really good to see the community spirit that is such a feature of the West End coming to the fore again today.
 
I was interviewed about the clean-up on Wave 102 news earlier today – click ‘play’  below to listen:
