The litter-pick, that was due to be a collaborative effort between the Kinlochleven Community Council (KCC) and Kinlochleven Community Trust (KCT), has been cancelled due to COVID-19 advice.

It was due to take place on Saturday March 28, but the national Walkers are Welcome group have cancelled the event that was due to take place in 57 towns and villages across the UK.

Volunteers from the KCC were gearing up to take on clearing litter along both roads coming into Kinlochleven as volunteers from the KCT would be dealing with common areas and roads within the village.

A statement on behalf of both groups said: ‘Due to the current circumstances with the COVID-19 pandemic, the KCT and KCC have decided that it would be in the village’s best interests to cancel the village and loch side litter pick planned for Saturday March 28.’

Village residents were then encouraged to join the Kinlochleven Village Resilience and Support page on Facebook to support vulnerable members of the community.

Public events in the village have either been cancelled or – like the Kinlochleven Past and Present event – have been pushed to April/May.
