The Britain In Bloom judges were in Wilmslow on Friday 29th July 2016. Wilmslow is aiming for a 3rd gold award in a row.
The Clean Team volunteers help to tidy up the town in the run up to the judging. This year we organised 2 litter picks on Thursday 28th July.
On Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th July, 3 of our volunteers collected litter in and around Lindow Common.
At 10:00 on Thursday, 9 volunteers met at the Farmer’s Arms. We spread out in all directions covering a large area. The roads covered include Buckingham Road, Oak Lane, South Oak Lane, the Children’s playground off South Oak Lane, Gravel Lane, Newlands Drive, New Street, Moor Lane and the surrounding side streets, Chapel Lane, Hawthorn Street, Little Lindow including the children’s play area, Altrincham Road, Bedells Lane, Racecourse Road, and Alderley Road.
At 18:30, 8 volunteers met at Sainsbury’s car park. We covered the town centre including Alderley Road, Water Lane, Grove Street, Manchester Road, the Memorial Gardens and the Leisure Centre.
Some of our volunteers were also out and about on ad-hoc litter picks of their own in the run up to the judging – e.g. around Fulshaw Park and Alderley Road.
We collected around 21 bags of litter altogether plus some recyclables.
Well done everyone – fingers crossed for the results in October.
