On Wednesday 5th November 4 volunteers turned up for litter picking on a lovely sunny morning. We met in the King’s Arm’s car park. Some of the roads covered included Knutsord Road, Alderley Road, Chapel Lane, South Oak Lane (including the play area), Holly Road South, Parkway, Broadway and Holly Road North. We also picked around the Leisure Centre and Station approaches.
The weather was less kind to us on Saturday 8th November. 4 different volunteers met at Bank Square. We headed off in different directions. The main areas covered were Church Street, the Memorial Gardens, the Leisure Centre, Alderley Road, Green Lane and Knutsford Road. We took shelter from the heavy rain in the Leisure Centre cafe and had to stop picking earlier than intended.
We collected around 9 bags of rubbish altogether over both events.
Well done everyone.
