IMG_20150128_GG_Sandholm_Group_01Last week we headed down to Yoker to help the guys from the Green Gym and volunteers from Sustrans Scotland do a community clean up of a section of the cycle path at the back of Sandholm Terrace near to Dyke Road bridge. The area is a hot spot for fly tipping and a lot of rubbish had built up over the years.

Despite the weather we had a great turn out and 16 hardy souls did a fantastic job and cleared an amazing amount of rubbish much of which was fly-tipped household waste including mattresses, laminate flooring and an old washing machine! As you can see we managed to completely fill a link tipper which Community Safety Glasgow had provided for us.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped out and to Kim the warden in the sheltered housing giving us a nice warm cuppa! More photos below…
