Litter Picking Summary – 1st -> 4th July 2015

A fantastic start to a bumper litter picking month,

On Wednesday 1st July we had one of our biggest ever turnouts, with around 12 volunteers meeting up at the Leisure Centre and tidying up the surrounding area.

We were pleased to welcome help from a member of staff of car parking specialists, District Enforcement Ltd, who provide parking services for clients in Wilmslow. We hope that other Wilmslow businesses will come forward to contribute to the cause.

We would also like to thank the Northern Rail staff who are helping to keep the station forecourt clean.

One of our volunteers collected more than 100 laughing gas canisters behind the Leisure Centre football area and more around a bench at the far side of the cricket pitch.

17 bags were left at the Leisure Centre and the council were advised to collect

wilmslow clean team and friends of lacey green park liitter pick 1st july 20154 of our volunteers met up with The Friends Of Lacey Green Park On Saturday 4th.  The Friends focussed on tidying the park whilst the Clean Team spread out to tidy the surrounding roads. The area behind the parade of shops was again particularly bad.

Thanks to our ongoing co-operation with The Friends, we collected between us a total of 13 bags of litter, a traffic cone and a bicycle tyre. These were left at the entrance to the park and the council have been notified to collect.

So – 30 bags collected in July so far – and we will also be doing an extra event on 22nd July to help get the town spruced up for the Britain In Bloom judging.

Well done everyone!
