On Wednesday 1st March, 14 Clean Team volunteers met up at Summerfields for the first of our 2 scheduled March litter picks. We also invited “Riverside/Your Place” who kindly sent along a team of 3 to join us.
The riverside team came in two trucks and concentrated on the Colshaw Farm estate. The Clean Team ventured far and wide – eastwards along Dean Row Road as far as the roundabout with Handforth Road, all around the Summerfields housing estate, down the slip road to the A34 bypass, down the footpath towards Wilmslow town centre, along Manchester Road, between Blue Bell crossroads and Styal Road junction, and along Stanneylands Road as far as the hotel.
A massive haul of 59 bags which we could not have acheived without the help of Riverside.
We covered the town centre including the Leisure Centre area, the path from the station to the High School, Water Lane, part of Altrincham Road, Alderley Road (and some of the side streets), Macclesfield Road, Sainsbury’s car park, the gardens behind Hoopers, and Broadway,
We collected 20 bags altogether.
As always, it was lovely to welcome some new faces to our litter picks.
An impressive total of 79 bags collected over the 2 scheduled March picks.
We will carry on the good work in the annual Wilmslow Spring Clean which runs from 27th March -> 2nd April
