Members from the Rotary Club of Linlithgow Grange’s Community Service Team were out in force recently helping to clear up around Linlithgow Loch.

They had been requested to assist Ranger Manager Martin Gray, from Historic Scotland, in a clean up of the north shore.

The purpose of the exercise was to help open up a paths network within the tree line, and to make further clearances in nearby areas by coppicing trees and saplings to allow for planting of wild flowers, which in turn, will help secure the local bee population.

Martin said: “I would just like to say a big thanks to the members of the Rotary who gave up their time to help us work on the pathways and surrounding woodland.

“They had bags of enthusiasm and really mucked in.

“It’s a great example of the Linlithgow community and Historic Scotland working together for a common cause.

“All I can say is, long may it continue.”
