Delph Pond Clean Up
There was a good turnout yesterday [26th April] at the Delph Pond for a bit of Spring Clean (part of Scotland's National Clean Up Campaign.
Lot's of litter cleared from around the place by a crowd of enthusiastic helpers; was really good to see a bit of community spirit on show and to be a part of it too.
Well done to all participating and to everyone organising the event.

A new public artwork by sculptor Andy Scott was erected at Muirside roundabout in Tullibody on 1 February.The sculpture of a striding man, entitled 'Man in Motion', is a partner piece to the popular 'River Spirit', which graces Collylands roundabout between Sauchie and Alva. Children from St Serf's primary school in Tullibody visited Andy Scott's workshop and his assistant came to the school to work with the pupils. Many of Andy's projects incorporate educational aspects and he has even incorporated creative input from schools and community groups. Councillor Carrick said, 'We're delighted to have Andy's work on view to residents and visitors in Clackmannanshire, and the fact that he has involved the school makes this piece even more special. We're sure it will become a popular local landmark.'
