A GROUP which is on a mission to reinvigorate Renfrewshire’s regional park is looking for new members.

The Friends of Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park want to help local residents learn more about its hills and moorland, as well as restoring the habitats and biodiversity which have been eroded in recent years.

Covering more than 100 square miles, the regional park stretches across Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and North Ayrshire.

Members are keen to work with council chiefs and private landowners to bring areas of disused land in the park back into community use and make it more accessible to the general public.

Joseph Greenlees, chairman of Friends of Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, said: “We envisage a future for the regional park that reflects the needs and aspirations of the local communities, landowners and visitors.

“We hope that, together, we can create a landscape that will recognise some of the seismic changes such as climate change and other serious challenges in a post-pandemic Scotland.”
