The newly formed Mayfield and Easthouses Environmental Group held its first community litter pick last Saturday.

The group met at the local Scotmid store and cleaned up the surrounding area, with more than a dozen local people attending the event.

The sun was shining as the litter pickers filled 13 refuse bags with rubbish.

Among those in attendance were Councillor Kenneth Baird (SNP), Councillor John Hackett (Lab) and local MSP Colin Beattie (SNP).

The group is planing another pick on November 4 at 11am, meeting at the Mayfield Place Scotmid again.
