The chairman of the Lanarkshire branch of the Communist Party, Paul McGregor said that efforts were at first concentrated on the parkland near Braidhurst Street.

He added: “The local authorities here have neglected their responsibility to tidy up this area that is essential to the community and the YCL are taking it amongst ourselves to provide this service so people in the community can use the area safely.”

Their Go Fund Me page can be accessed under the heading Lanarkshire Environmental Clean up and more details feature on the group’s Facebook page.
