Youngsters spring into action with massive cleanup

UP to 100 youngsters showed they are a class act when taking part in a major blitz on litter across Larkhall.

Children from Hareleeshill Primary, Glengowan Primary, Craigbank Primary and Larkhall Academy took part in several &lsquoclean up&rsquo days in the town. Youth charity the Machan Trust, who are based in Marshall Street, organised the event as part of Keep Scotland Beautiful National Spring Clean campaign. The Advertiser teamed up with South Lanarkshire Council and Keep Scotland Beautiful to encourage people to get litter picking, and tidy up their communities. Fifteen pupils at Harleeshill Primary after-school club wore high-visibilty vests and were armed with litter picker sticks to tidy up their playground and streets surrounding the school. They teamed up with volunteers from the Machan Trust and SNP MSP Aileen Campbell to rid the area of rubbish. Larkhall Academy pupils tidied up the Cherryhill area and McNeil Street while Glengowan pupils were out in force to clean up in and around the school and parts of Main Street.

Craigbank Primary School blitzed the area around their school in Glengonnar Street on Tuesday and volunteers tackled the rubbish in Union Street on Saturday and the area surrounding Harleeshill Sports Barn the following day.
