Keep Johnshaven Beautiful

Improving the Environment

We're always looking for ways to improve the environment of our village.  Amongst these have been participation in Keep Scotland Beautiful activities (always popular), and we have also helped to keep the gorse at bay on the old railway line North of the village, although that has not been necessary in 2016 thanks to the bulldozing of this important bird habitat.  See further down the page for KSB Clean-up photographs.

Here's a picture taken at the 2014 gorse clearing:



We've also helped out at St Cyrus Nature Reserve, bracken bashing!

Some scenes from our clean-up activity on the railway line.  There seemed to be less on some parts of the line than in 2011, so maybe the message is getting through...  Rannoch was bored by it all anyway.

A couple of happy hours picking up a variety of litter on the railway line and in Waird's Park, with a certain amount of standing around in the sunshine at our base at the Community Garden.
