More Groups to take a leaf out of Friends of Bishopbriggs Park's book.
Local MP Jo Swinson recently met with the Friends of Bishopbriggs Park to find out more about the work they have been doing to improve the appearance of the park.
The volunteers have been working tirelessly over the past 14 months, organising litter picks; planting flowers; and cleaning the benches, signs and sculptures. They are also working with local schools to educate pupils about the effect litter can have on our local environment and wildlife.
Commenting afterwards, Jo said:
“It was lovely to meet Anney and the rest of the Friends of Bishopbriggs Park volunteers last month. The park is looking lovely and I am delighted that their work has been recognised by the Bishopbriggs Community Council who awarded them with the Butterfly Award in 2018.
“Bishopbriggs Park has also been nominated for UK’s Best Park 2019 and I hope that everyone who uses it will show their support by voting for it via the Field’s in Trust website, which can be accessed here http://www.fieldsintrust.org/best-park/scotland
“We are so lucky to have such beautiful green spaces on our doorstep so I would encourage anyone with green fingers or anyone who wants to help keep Bishopbriggs Park looking its best, to get in touch with Anney through the Friends of Bishopbriggs Park Facebook page.”
Commenting, Anney said:
"Friends of Bishopbriggs Park were delighted to meet MP Jo Swinson on Saturday 20th. It was great to show Jo round the park and to explain our experience of litter picking in the park and some of the clean up jobs we’ve also been doing."
