A PRAM, a child’s tent, a tractor tyre and a baby’s doll were all discovered in a clean-up of Rosyth’s public park and burn.

Andrew Dunlop was one of a handful of volunteers from the Love Rosyth Clean community initiative who recently waded in to the Brankholm Burn and its surroundings for an impressive haul of dumped rubbish.

Public-spirited Andrew, from Cardenden, has been on a mission of late to rid local burns and waterways of obscene amounts of waste.

Inspired by You Tube videos, he began with magnet fishing and now pulls on the waders in his own spare time to dredge up the debris.

He told the Press this week that he is often “amazed by what people throw in” to our local waters, and his most recent clean-up resulted in six filled black bags of rubbish as well as a collection of other large items.

“We were cleaning out the burn that goes through the public park and the pond there as well,” he said.

“We found a kid’s tent, which I got out with a hook, and we found a tractor tyre, I used a magnet and 20-metres of rope to pull that out.

“There was a baby’s doll as well – I was terrified when I saw that! There was an old-fashioned skateboard with handlebars and roller-skates, which were beneath the ground.

“There was a pram and bits of wood as well, along with the six bags of rubbish.”

Andrew, along with Love Rosyth Clean members Derek and Roland, cleaned out the burn on Thursday last week and more clean-ups are planned for the Rosyth area.
