Cleaning up old Deeside railway

Pupils from Camphill School, lower Deeside, held a litter picking day on the old Deeside railway line walkway between Milltimber and Bieldside, this week.

The clean up is the pupils’ own idea, having been proposed by the school’s active Eco Group. Their ultimate aim is to achieve ‘Eco School’ Status for Camphill School Aberdeen.

Camphill School Aberdeen provides day and residential education for children and young people who have additional support needs.

The school is one of seven charities that make up Camphill Aberdeen City and Shire, providing opportunities for children, young people, adults and the elderly.

The Camphill Movement began in Aberdeen in 1940, taking its name from Camphill House on Camphill Campus. Now, more than 700 people live and work with Camphill charities in the Aberdeen area and the movement extends to more than 100 centres in 23 countries.
