Ann Palmer of Gress, has volunteered her services to clean litter off Gress beach on a regular basis. Ann had seen a TV programme which showed a volunteer offering their services to collect refuse off Snowden and thought that it was a great idea. She has been supplied with a litter picker, high visibility vest, gloves and bags by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar. Ann has picked up a wide range of items from the beach, ranging from linoleum to car bumpers!
Ann and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar hope that this will encourage other people to do the same in their area and help keep our beaches clean. If you would like to volunteer your services to keep your local area litter free, please contact us to discuss this further.
