The Western Isles Support for the Environment (WISE) project continued in Harris last weekend when a small group of primary children and their camera-shy parents walked the Direcleit circular path to collect all the litter. The path is part of the Harris Walkway. They collected all sorts of rubbish, mainly plastic bags, animal feed bags, old rope, tin cans, food packaging and bottles. The children thought they should also pick up a whole sheep’s skeleton but after a quick lesson in biodegradability decided to leave it where it was!
