Litter Picking Summary 2nd->5th November 2016

Wilmslow Clean Team Leisure Centre Litter Pick Wednesday 2nd November 2016Perfect weather attracted a total of 15 people to the Leisure Centre on Wednesday 2nd for the first of our 2 scheduled November litter picks.

We were really pleased to be supported by 2 local businesses : 3 new volunteers (Elinor, Leam & Ella Pearson) from Q Hotels (Mottram Hall) and 2 of our regular helpers (Michelle & Rebecca) from the Yorkshire Building Society. Massive thanks for your help and on-going support.

New volunteers are always most welcome and it was nice to welcome Joseph for the first time too.

We focussed on the area immediately around the Leisure Centre, Sainsbury’s car park, Manchester Rd to the viaduct and Water Lane up to and around the Police Station.

21 bags of litter were collected altogether which is a fantastic effort.

The most unusual finds of the day were a set of reasonable quality metal Boules (which we dropped off at a charity shop), a used pair of female knickers (which we didn’t !) and a stick like ball thrower.

6 volunteer’s met at The Honey Bee on Saturday 5th November and worked along Altrincham Road down to the airport tunnels.

A total of 11 bags were collected along with 1 bag of recyclables. Another good effort.

One very unusual and alarming find was a carrier bag hung on a tree that was full of diesel!

So – altogether we collected 33 bags at our 2 November picks

Well done everyone – hope to see you all in December.
