All Welcome at Community Litter Picks

The community are invited to help clean up Penicuik.

As the summer nears and the trees spring back into life, the time has come to get the town looking its best for the festival season.

Throughout the month of April and May, four community litter picks are being held, targeting a series of problem areas throughout Penicuik and District. One of these took place earlier this month in Beeslack Woods, where volunteers managed to get the woodland looking spotless.

Here are the details of the forthcoming litter picks:

  • Saturday 29 April – Beeslack Woods – Meet 9:30am Tesco car park
  • Saturday 6 May – Cuikenburn – Meet 9:30am YMCA/YWCA car park
  • Saturday 13 May – Lowrie’s Den – Meet 9:30am Penicuik House car park

Equipment is provided. All you need are some comfortable clothes and a willingness to make a difference.
