Big Cousland Spring Clean - Thanks!

Thanks to over 20 volunteers who each spent 2 hours on a Saturday morning on the Big Clean Up in Cousland. A massive container supplied by Midlothian Council was pretty full by the end of the day. One site alone which has been regularly tipped in has the front of a Van, a toilet, mountains of glass wool & plaster board which was all over the place & hundreds of flattened Tennants Special cans. The other end of The Dean was cleared of metres of red & white tape adorning the trees, again builders rubbish, in and out of bags, a lady's handbag complete with credit cards etc ( delivered to police) and a dead snake! Snake dealt with by local vet. The other major find was over 60 1/4 bottles from Glen's Vodka - clearly someone's regular dirinking place. Well done to all for dealing with such horrible stuff. The countryside is looking fabulous, hope it lasts for a while. Soup & coffee afterwards was very much appreciated too!
