We had Govanhill Community clean-up. It was wet and very cold day but it cold and wet weather weather didn’t stop our dedicated volunteers.
Today we decided to walk through the streets and report flytipping rather than picking up the litter. Some group members did both, they picked litter and also reported bulk items using My Glasgow App.
Thank you everyone for coming along. It has been a great day.
We have noticed that local businesses have been dumping food and general waste next to the school ground. Not only that they were dumping rubbish but also moved their waste bins next to school ground which is evident from the photos below:
I woulg like to take this opportunity to thank Glasgow City Council Environmental Task Force and Public Health for acting quickly. They didn’t only removed the rubbish but also instructed the businesses to move their bins from beside the school ground and place them next to their businesses.
As you can see that there are no bins and no rubbish beside the school ground.
We organised first ever Shawlands Community Clean-up in collaboration with Shawlands Academy. Due to bad weather there were only 2 volunteers and they have done grand job.
Big thanks to PTC Chair Derrick for joining us.
On community member said “well done , I have never seen this street clean like this”
A massive thanks to our volunteers who came out in the rain and cleaned the streets of Pollokshields.
Big thanks Safdar Sadiq for joining us too in such bad weather.
Hope people of Pollokshields will realise and dispose their rubbish responsibly.
After the clean-up we went to Delicious Too for refreshments
We are pleased to inform you that we are going to start Shawlands Community Clean-ups in collaboration with Shawlands Academy. The aim is to keep Shawlands Academy and surrounding streets tidy.
We will also encourage and educate youth to dispose waste responsible while they are at school and at home.
Please find the dates below for 2017 clean-ups
Hope everyone had a great 2016 and looking forward to 2017. Huge thanks to each and everyone of you for your support throughout 2016 and hope you will continue to support over the next 12 months to keep Pollokshields tidy.
