For the past 3 years, PHS has contributed to Keep Scotland Beautiful’s Clean Up Scotland initiative in collaboration with volunteers from the Seafield and Princes St McDonald’s restaurants. The initiative involves a litter pick, cleaning up Figgate Burn and tidying the garden in our local Figgate Park, with valuable support from the council ranger service and local councillors.
This year, the intiative, and the other work these McDonald’s restaurants do in Edinburgh, were rewarded with runner up in the ‘Love Where You Live’ award, introduced to recognise employees’ work towards Keep Britain Tidy’s Love Where You Live campaign. They beat over 1,200 other finalists from across the UK to the position – this photo shows crew member Katelyn Scott receiving the award.

The Figgate Park Clean Up involves S2 pupils and takes place in May – well done to those involved!
