Members of an award-winning Drumchapel disability group have been doing their bit for the environment and the community with their seventh litter pick of the year.

Service users and staff from Enable Fortune Works took to Drumchapel Park on Thursday, November 2 and got stuck in as part of the It's Your Neighbourhood (IYN) initiative.

Enable is a social enterprise for people with a learning disability and has been recognised in the past by BBC 1's The One Show and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) for their work in community gardening.

And Rachel Maitland from the charity explained it was another profitable afternoon.

She told the Clydebank Post: "The litter pick was very successful with several bags of litter collected.

"The initiative is important not only as a means of cleaning up our local park but as an opportunity to create strong links within the community and break down barriers of exclusion that our service users can face."

The IYN scheme is a local environmental improvement project based on the three pillars of community participation, environmental responsibility and gardening achievement, managed in partnership with the RHS under the Britain in Bloom campaign.

And Enable hope to continue to strengthen these links with some upcoming events.

On Thursday, November 23, they throwing a party at the Good Year Social Club to celebrate the year just passed.

The event will run between 12pm and 3pm.

Then, in the new year, Enable are hosting a charity fundraising night on Saturday, January 27 in the hope of buying for new equipment for the service.

Tickets for both are priced at £10 and can be purchased at Fortune Works 195a Drumry Road East, Drumchapel, G15 8NS.
