Litter Picking Summary 7th + 10th March 2018

wilmslow clean team march 2018 summerfields13 volunteers met at Summerfields on Wednesday 7th March. We focused on the surrounding area including Colshaw Drive.

The litter on the banks down to the railway tracks from the bridge on Dean Row Road is really bad. We have reported this to Network Rail and received a very positive – they are aiming to clean all this up in the 2nd week of April.

ANSA confirmed that this is the back entrance to Wilmslow Cemetery and have flagged it up as an area where anti-social behaviour taking place.  We also found lots of empty nitrous oxide canisters.

 

We found some really disgusting areas where dozens of bagged up dog poo bags had been left in hedgerows and hanging on trees. This is unfortunately a common experience. Dog owners need to take more responsibility for disposing of their dog poo bags.

Many thanks to the Q Hotels team from Mottram Hall. They have helped us in the past and it was great to welcome 3 of their staff who came to help us on this litter pick.

We collected a total of 19 bags of litter and other debris. These 2 events were used to support the nationwide “Great British Spring Clean” event which is organised annually by “Keep Britain Tidy”.

9 volunteers met in the Anthology car park on Saturday 10th March. We spread out and covered various parts of the town centre.  The areas around the Railway Station and around Sainsbury’s/the Library were particularly badly littered.  We popped into Anthology afterwards for refreshment.

We would like to thank Anthology for allowing us to use their car park for our town centre litter picks. We really appreciate this.

We collected around 20 bags.

So – we collected 39 bags in our scheduled picks, but there has been a lot of activity recently including a blitz on Burleyhurst Lane in Mobberley and some solo picking by our volunteers.  We have collected 72 bags, since the last month’s report, which is amazing.

Well done and thanks to everyone involved.

Litter Picking Summary 6th + 9th September 2017

We hit some really horrible weather for this month’s litter picks – but still managed a reasonable haul of litter.

3 volunteers met at Wilmslow Leisure Centre on Wednesday 6th September and we collected 6 bags in the surrounding area.

7 volunteers met at Summerfields on Saturday 9th – a very good turnout considering the heavy rainfall. We focussed on the surrounding area including Colshaw Drive and the path down to the bypass. We collected 10 bags altogether.

So – 16 bags in total.

Let’s hope for some kinder weather in October.
