The CleanTeam assisted the 7th Wilmslow Guides with a litter picking event organised by their leader Angela Ross.
We provided the equipment plus a couple of volunteers. Around 12 guides and several leaders did most of the litter picking.
The guides focussed on Lindow Common whilst the CleanTeam volunteers focussed on the surrounding area (Racecourse Road, Altrincham Road etc).
We were impressed by the enthusiasm of the guides. 7 bags of rubbish were collected and bagged.
Thanks to Angela and the guides for a tremendous effort. Hopefully we can arrange some similar events together in the future.
We will be working with Wilmslow Town Council on the annual “Spring Clean Wilmslow” event. Two of our litter picking events are scheduled during this week – see the Events page for more details. Flyers will be distributed to homes in the run up to this event. There is more information about the event on the Wilmslow Town Council website :
Some other organisations including the Fire Brigade and some local scout and guide groups are planning to do their own litter picks during Spring Clean Week. It’s great that the local community is pulling together.
