Tackling mindless littering culture

Siobhian has been instrumental in raising awareness of the mindless littering culture that blights our towns. She has had monthly litter pick blitzes and has supported many community groups to try to tackle the ongoing problem.

 

Christmas Tree Sand dune project – Ayr Beach

Siobhian has fully supported the South Ayrshire Council Park Rangers Sand Dune project at Ayr Beach. Over the past several years, Ayr Beach has seen a huge amount of sand erosion. In 2019, the public were encouraged to bring down Christmas Trees to form sand dunes. The project was a huge success and the dunes formed have made a significant positive impact on the reduction of sand loss. The project continued in 2020 to extend further along the beach and has had a huge response from the public.
