Welcome donation will support beach clean ups!

It has never been easier to help keep our coastline clean thanks to a £1,000 donation from the Doris Family who operate the ice cream vans at Gullane and Yellowcraig and own the Amalfi Ice Cream Parlour, Dirleton.

With the donation, East Lothian Countryside Volunteers (ELCV) have been able to supply litter picking equipment which is now available for use by the general public at both Gullane and Yellowcraig beaches.

Information on how to borrow the equipment is available on site at Gullane and Yellowcraig, and on the ELCV website: https://www.elcv.org.uk/tasks/litter/

David Oldham, chair of ELCV said: This donation which has helped purchase litter picking equipment for ELCV is hugely appreciated, and will give visitors to Gullane and Yellowcraig the opportunity to give something back during their visit in helping to keep our countryside clean.”

David Wild of East Lothian Council Ranger Service added: Litter in our countryside and on our coastline poses significant threats to wildlife, and undermines people’s enjoyment of our wonderful wildlife habitats. ELCV make a huge contribution to litter clearance projects at Yellowcraig and around the county and having the opportunity to extend this to casual visitors to our sites is warmly welcomed. “
