There are a couple of upcoming work days/events that were mentioned:

Pilrig Park clean-up rescheduled

(adapted from an email from Friends of Pilrig Park)

FoPP’s Events Calendar has a clean-up day scheduled for this weekend (12-13 November). However, because we have only just run the bulb-planting event we will look to reschedule this either later in the month or next month. Maybe a December litter pick with mince pies and mulled wine afterwards? Nothing says ‘Christmas’ quite like pulling old bits of carpet out of the woods in your local park!

LCCC suggests you contact FoPP via email (friendsofpilrigpark@gmail.com) or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfPilrigPark) to find out when the event will take place. Of course, if we find out, we will be sure to post it here.
