Help needed for Ferry Glen

VOLUNTEERS are being sought to assist with the general upkeep of the Ferry Glen and Back Braes area of Queensferry.

The Friends of Ferry Glen are looking for additional helpers to ensure that the woodland area continues to flourish.

Gordon Wood, chairman of Friends of Ferry Glen, said: “Over the past five or six years much has been achieved in this area of Queensferry. And at present a small group of pensioners help maintain a fortnightly litter pick of the area. Indeed, without their help both the Ferry Glen and Back Braes areas would have returned to dumping grounds for litter and fly tipping. But we do need more helpers to assist with general duties.”

If you feel you can assist contact Gordon Wood on 0131 331 3076 or email him at
