People in Arbuthnott are being urged to get out into the community and take part in a special spring clean this Saturday, April 26.
The litter pick will focus on clearing grass verges around the area.
Andrew Jones, chairman of Arbuthnott Community Council, said: “I hope that local residents across the parish will spend a couple of hours tidying up.”
Bags, tabards, pickers and rubber gloves will be supplied. Residents are advised to wear suitable clothing.
Mr Jones added: “It’s amazing how much rubbish is lying around. We all want to keep the area looking as beautiful as possible but we do need everyone to help.”
Volunteers are asked to register at Arbuthnott Hall anytime between 10am and 1pm.
