With energy from tasty snacks from Asher's bakery, over 20 volunteers turned up on Sunday 13 May to take part in Carrbridge's annual Spring Clean, part of the National Spring Clean campaign.
In association with Highland Council and Keep Scotland Beautiful, the tidying team armed themselves with bags and littergrabs and headed off to scour the village and rid it of litter. One enthusiastic volunteer even donned a pair of thigh-length waders and gave the local burn a thorough cleaning.
Representatives from the village's businesses were out in forces as well as villagers and local children. And, because of their endeavours, Carrbridge is now living up to its reputation as being the jewel of the Cairngorms.
Organiser Roy Brown was pleased with the turnout for the litterpick, now in its third year. He said: “I was encouraged by the enthusiasm of the adults and kids who helped. Of course we were spurred on by the reward of a tasty treat kindly provided again by Asher's Bakery.”
