Tahir visited keep Scotland Beautiful offices in Stirling last Friday. I met with Nicola and discussed the work we do in Pollokshields and if there are any best practice she can share with us.

I shared the work we do and we do it. She was very impressed by our work and how we do it.

She shared materials from Keep Scotland Beautiful and assured us that Keep Scotland Beautiful will continue to provide us support.
