Great turnout for 2012 Pencaitland Litter Pick-Up

Many thanks to all those who helped make our annual Litter Pick-up a success this year, despite the constant threat of rain. We had over 50 kids and parents, plus our local MP Fiona O’Donnell and primary school Head Mary McCall at the event.

  • Old garage sign blown away during the winter storms
  • Drinks cans
  • Huge numbers of cigarette butts
  • Glass and plastic bottles and much more…

Next year let’s get even more of you out on the day.

Finally, we ran a raffle for all kids who took part in this year’s event with head teacher Mary McCall doing the honours and selecting the winning ticket. Heather Hamilton (lucky number 20) was the winner of the prize of a Fujifilm digital camera, case and 4GB memory card, making her the official event photographer for next year’s litter pick-up.
