Keeping Hillhead Cleaner

Between 28th March and 5th April, there were organised volunteer clean ups across Hillhead. On 1st April, I supported the removal of littering from Belgrave Terrace and surrounding streets. There was a good turnout of local residents coordinated by Action Hillhead.

Action Hillhead is a voluntary group which aims to create and to demand a higher standard of cleanliness and far more pleasant environment within Hillhead. It works with Land and Environmental Services (LES) Cleansing Department, Community Safety Glasgow, Hillhead High School, Students and Estates Department Glasgow University, and Glasgow Academy.

After the clean up on 1st April, the various streets and lanes next to Belgrave Terrace were litter-free. This area is regularly cleaned up by residents. They have been involved in maintaining the cobbled lane and ensuring the open spaces are looked after.

The efforts of Action Hillhead have supported an improvement in the appearance of many streets. There have been social benefits as people involved have had an opportunity to meet up with neighbours to share their concerns.
