7 volunteers met at Bank Square on Wednesday 5th September. We focused on the town centre. One volunteer found a lot of rubbish hidden by bushes in Sainsbury’s car park – including a particularly bad area around a bench near the walkway to Parkway (the bench gas clearly been moved there illegally). 10 bags plus sundry some hub caps were collected altogether.
We had 7 volunteers out and about at our Summerfields pick on Saturday 8th September. Despite the miserable weather we managed to collect 12 bags altogether. We covered the surrounding area including Dean Row Road, Colshaw Drive and the roads near the bypass. 3 volunteers spent an hour doing the hedgerow on one side of Howty Close alone – there is so much litter in this area.
So – 22 bags, plus some recyclables on our 2 scheduled September picks plus some extra bags collected by some of our other volunteers on solo picks.
Thanks and well done everyone.
