Several areas in Scotland are cleaner and prettier this week after a co-ordinated litter picking campaign by churches in the Scottish Mission on the weekend of 18 and 19 June. Adults and children from Paisley, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Dundee could be seen on road verges, residential areas and parks lifting discarded crisp packets, cans, bottles, and other unsightly items that were definitely not where they were intended to be. In Aberdeen the children were bemused to find a very pretty, but lonely shoe. Nothing was quite as rewarding as when one of the participants in Paisley lifted, what looked like a piece of plastic, but discovered that it was a £20 note! The day was rewarding in more ways than one!..
