The new Plastic Free Helensburgh group is holding its first litter pick in the town centre this Saturday, July 13.

Volunteer litter pickers will meet outside the Royal Bank of Scotland in Colquhoun Square at 3.45pm.

Plastic Free Helensburgh is a group of local volunteers who would like to eliminate single-use plastic from Helensburgh and improve the local environment.

The clean-up will start in Colquhoun Square and then continue on either to the seafront or towards Sinclair Street.

Fiona McLeod from Plastic Free Helensburgh said: “The litter pick is for an hour but please feel free to spend as long or as little as you like - we appreciate any time you can spare.

“Please bring gloves and a bag for collecting rubbish. If you have a litter picker, please bring this too. All ages welcome.”

The group is hoping to achieve Plastic Free Communities status for Helensburgh, as awarded by Surfers Against Sewage, and has to achieve a number of objectives to succeed, including holding at least two community events each year.
