Wilmslow Fire Brigade have started are running a new initiative to talk to shop keepers (and landlords) in Wilmlow to discuss a recent increase in arson and anti social fire incidents. They asked for the Clean Team to become involved too.
One area that is particularly bad is Grove Way. Much of the problem lies with private property at the back of premises. We have reported this to Ansa as well as it needs a proper clean up to stop it becoming an even greater fire risk. The Clean Team collected 2 bags around this area on Tuesday 1st August.
18 bags and 3 hubcaps were collected by 10 of our volunteers on Wedesday 2nd August. We covered whole of Altrincham Road between the Waters Roundabout and the mouths of the Airport tunnel, also part of Morley Green Road, and the roads behind the Airport Inn. Many thanks to Gary and Jane from The Yorkshire Building Society – we are grateful for their continuing support.
10 volunteers met at The Parish Hall on Saturday 5th August. 2 of the volunteers drove over to cover Prestbury Road (between Leaside Way and Hough Lane) and Hough Lane (between Prestbury Road and Macclesfied Road). The other 8 covered the area around The Parish Hall including Kings Rd, The Carrs, Broadway, the Railway Station, the Leisure Centre and Cliff Road. A total of 15 bags of litter and 2 hub caps were collected.
So – at least 35 bags of litter (and 5 hub caps !) have been collected so far this month. Well done everyone!
