Helena Mcallister, Carole Thomson, Evelyn Scobie, Bridget McDonald and Maureen Henderson picked at least 16 bags of litter from the roadside between Aberargie and Abernethy. In addition Bridget and Sheena McNaughton have been collecting litter in and around the village for many years. The community spirit displayed is to be aplauded and we cannot say enough in support of them but two thoughts;
Why is it there in the first place? Who is throwing it away?
Why aren’t we organising this on a regular basis with village volunteers?
It should not be left to a few to do our clearing up. We have Abernethy in Bloom who have done a wonderful job of beautifying the area. Now we need to have a Clean Abernethy.
