Volunteers wanted for Ben Nevis clean up weekend

The Friends of Nevis are planning a volunteer clean up at Glen Nevis to coincide with their annual dinner and celebration. The weekend will kick off with a day of work at the curling ponds on Friday 23 March. The organisers are expecting this to involve a lot of culvert clearing, weeding, tidying, litter picking, and ditch maintenance with lots of jobs for lots of volunteers. The day starts at 10:30 and tools, gloves etc will be provided.

On Saturday 24 March the Friends will hold their annual dinner hosted by Charles Kennedy. Organisers say that a great night is on offer including bubbly and canapes, superb gift/goody bag, three course meal, presentation featuring the new Nevis app and podcasts, excellent raffle and dancing to the music of Brocken Spectre Ceilidh Band.

On the Sunday a guided walk on the old upper path to Steall in Glen Nevis will offer the chance to blow away the cobwebs and enjoy the mountain scenery. Further details of these events can be found at the Friends of Nevis website.
