Engineers from cable TV and broadband ISP Virgin Media last week took time out from their on-going work in Musselburgh (East Lothian, Scotland) to help clean the local beach, which resulted in the team of 20 collecting 10 large bags of litter. The local network is currently being extended to a 6,000 extra premises.
Musselburgh is the largest coastal settlement within the East Lothian (Scotland) area and Virgin Media’s local extension work is due to complete by the end of 2019 (here). However, as part of the operator’s community engagement projects, a number of engineers also kindly donated their spare time to clean up the beach. The operator will also be sponsoring the Honest Toun Family Day at Musselburgh Racecourse on Sunday 29th September.
VM’s Regional Director for Scotland, Julie Agnew, said: “We’re extremely proud of all our staff who gave up their free time to clean up the much-loved Musselburgh beach. We know it’s a place where both local Musselburgh residents and visitors spend time connecting with people – whether that’s getting involved in a community event, going on strolls with their friends or playing with their families.”
