Valley clean-up helps to reduce fly-tipping
WORK to upgrade Glasney Valley, in Penryn, is also helping to reduce fly-tipping.
A team of volunteers has been busy clearing overgrown seating areas and paths to open them up for people to use once more.
New picnic benches will be installed, along with planters around the site.
The group, under the auspices of the Glasney Greenspace Regeneration Project, cleared a large amount of glass, beer cans and bottles from the area.

A spokesman for the group said: "Since we have been working in the valley, many people have supported our efforts and are very pleased with what we have done so far.
"We have also noticed a decline in the level of fly-tipping, which supports our argument that, if we take pride and encourage others to do the same with a positive, hands-on approach, respect for their green space will come."
The path clearance is the first phase of a major project to overhaul the space.
