A lot's bin going on in Tillicoultry
IT'S said that politics is a dirty business and for one councillor that was at least true on Monday.
Councillor Archie Drummond took part in a litter pick of the town's High Street at the start of Tillicoultry Community Week.
He was joined by Jim Love, who keeps the streets clean, and a team of volunteers.
The litter pick followed live music in the Woolpack the previous evening.
There are also events at Tillicoultry Golf Club and a series of activities for kids in the Baptist Church.
Mr Drummond said, "The programme for the week has been built up by local groups and businesses and the variety of events and activities, for all ages, is amazing given the speed with which this has come together.
"Leaflets have been delivered and posters are up around the town setting out the programme and I would urge everyone in our community to make sure they get involved. I am sure there is something for everyone.
"I am personally glad that we are having a visit from a group of French friends from Crevecoeur le Grand this week as they will be able to join in some of the activities and get a taste of the real Tillicoultry."
