7 volunteers met at the Leisure Centre. Most of our efforts were in the Leisure Centre grounds. Some of the hedgerows were particularly bad although this may be because we haven’t tackled them before and were dealing with a build up of litter over a long period. We also did some work on Station Road.
Some of the volunteers collected litter on their walk to and from the Leisure Centre. This included Water Lane, Altrincham Road, Bourne Street and Alderley Road.
We even managed to get together for a mid morning break and enjoyed a coffee outside the Pickle Jar cafe (part of Wilmslow Leisure Centre). The problems we are up against as a team were typified by the behaviour of one of the employees from the Leisure Centre. She came out of the cafe for a smoke and then threw her cigarette end on the floor just outside the cafe door – right in front of 6 gob-smacked litter pickers!
We collected about 12 bags of rubbish altogether.
Well done everyone!
