FoVP_CleanUp_Group3_Inst_20140607A massive THANK YOU to everyone that turned out to help clean up Victoria Park. Nearly 40 people participated in the clean up and the weather stayed dry as over 20 bags of litter and rubbish were cleared from all areas of the park including the Fossil Grove, around the pond, the rose garden and the tennis courts and bowls area. There were also two bags of bottles and cans which have gone to be recycled!

The event, which took place as part of Volunteers Week, was organised by DRCET in partnership with Friends of Victoria Park and with support from Community Safety Glasgow so a big thanks to them too! And thanks to the additional volunteers from the Park Run group that helped out as well (after a 5K run!!) It is hoped there will be some more clean ups over the coming months so keep your eyes peeled for more information!

Friends of Victoria Park is a voluntary West Glasgow group set up to protect and develop this valuable and popular community asset. To find out more and join the group visit their website and their Facebook group. See more photos below…
