Cleaning up the Southside (1)

A litter pick organised by the Southside Association took place this morning at Braidwood Gate near the Crags  Sports Centre.  Around a dozen local people, assisted by the binmen made quite an impact on the area of woodland between the path leading to Dumbiedykes and the boundary wall with Holyrood Park - as you can see from these before and after pictures.  For more pics see next post.

I believe it was 3 street cleansing staff Depot from Craigmillar Depot, not 'bin men', that helped us with the clean up. These guys kept us right and ensured our safety; doing the dangerous bits and the heavy lifting, they did and always do a wonderful job. Much better than Enterprise could ever do. Thank you.
