6 volunteers met at The Honey Bee on Wednesday 3rd May. We covered Altrincham Road from Waters down to the airport tunnels, the area around The Airport Hotel and the closed off road nearby. We collected 9 bags, a bucket, 3 full tins of paint and a dead squirrel ! The fly tipped material on the land belonging to Manchester Airport is still there despite us reporting it to them some months ago. Thanks to Leanne from Holiday Inn Express for her ongoing support. Many thanks to John and James at The Honey Bee for the free coffee afterwards.
Another volunteer, Viv, went out on her own and collected 2 bags from Priory Road, Gorsey Road, outside Gorsey Bank School, Broad Walk, Hawthorn and Alton Road.
A fantastic turn out on Saturday 6th May. 12 volunteers met at The Leisure Centre. We spread out in all directions and covered most of the town centre including Alderley Road, Grove Street, Manchester Road, Sainsbury’s Car Park, Parkway, the area around the railway station, Macclesfield Road (up to Daveylands) and part of Daveylands. We collected at least 17 bags plus a few recyclables. We left 6 bags in Sainsbury’s car park for the council to collect – along with 2 fly tipped shower doors, a suitcase, some metal spikes and a sewing machine. The other bags were left at the Leisure Centre and in Bank Square.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the May litter picks. We collected 28 bags altogether in May along with other bits and pieces.
