The Kinlochleven Community Trust (KCT) and Community Council (KCC) are teaming up to make the village presentable, inside and out.

As part of the national Walkers are Welcome litter-pick, the two groups will clean up separate areas on Saturday March 28 from 10am to 2pm.

The KCC will be taking responsibility for cleaning up the roads on both sides of Loch Leven leading to the village, which have unfortunately gathered some more rubbish since the last one took place in October.

Volunteers for KCT will, at the same time, be focusing on the centre of the village, around the communal areas and pathways.

Absolutely everyone is free to take part in this event and the more hands available, the more can be done.

All equipment necessary will be provided at the KCT office on the day, and once everything is done, the Salvation Army will provide hot food and drinks for all volunteers.

The Walkers are Welcome National Litter-pick is being held from Monday March 23 through to Sunday March 29 with participating towns and villages across the UK taking part.
