The Development Worker from our Stornoway office made a visit to Laxdale School today to present 4 of the 50 children that plan to take part in a beach clean up with some environmental packs.

The packs contain hi-vis tops, protective gloves, litter pickers and rubbish bin holders all of which we hope will help them make their clean up a little bit easier.

Lets hope you get a nice day for your clean up!
