Litter Picking Summary 6th + 9th February 201911 volunteers met at Summerfields on Wednesday 6th March and covered most roads and verges in this area and the Colshaw Farm Estate.

We collected 13 bags, some recyclables and miscellaneous items including a shopping trolley, a children’s cycle, a contractors yellow flashing light a TV and a mattress.  We have informed ANSA as usual and asked them to collect everything.

We were pleased to welcome a new volunteer (Janet) to this litter pick.

We were also delighted to welcome back Jane and Michelle from Yorkshire Building Society. They used to be regulars on our picks as part of their commitment to community activities.  They will be coming occasionally on Wednesdays from now on which is brilliant news.

5 volunteers met at Bank Square on Saturday 9th March. We covered the Leisure Centre, Green Lane, Church St, Mill St, Bollin Link and the town centre towards Sainbury’s.

We collected 8 bags bringing the total over our 2 scheduled picks to 21.

Various volunteers have been out picking individually. This includes a pick by Chris, Colin, Sally, and Liz who collected 8 bags on Burleyhurst Lane, on 21st February, from Morley Green to the Mobberley parish boundary. They took some recyclables home including a large amount of gin bottles !

Our total for the calendar year is now 105

Thanks and well done everyone.
