October 2019 Litter Pick Summary And Other News

10 volunteers met at The Kings Arms on Wednesday 2nd October. We spread out in all directions including the area around the High School.  We collected 12 bags.  We also collected some recyclables that were taken home and put in the silver bins.  We would like to thank The Kings Arms for allowing us to use their car park.

9 volunteers met at Lindow Common on Saturday 5th October. We collected a further 10 bags. We were very pleased to welcome 2 new members. We spread out covering the local area including Racecourse Road, Altrincham Road, Kings Road, the Jim Evison playing fields and Greaves Road.

A few volunteers also went out on solo picks so our total over the last month was 26 bags and our year to date total is 380.

We were happy to arrange a loan of our litter picking equipment to the local cub group on Tuesday 1st October. They went out with 6 hoops and collected 2 bags of litter on the Carnival Fields and the around the neighbouring scout hut. Well done to everyone involved.

We are continuing our efforts to make contact with the Colshaw Farm volunteers who have recently started some good community work to litter pick in that area.

Our committee continues to work on refinements to our constitution with a further meeting planned for the end of October.

Network Rail reacted to our recent request to clean up the embankments at the “Dean Row Road” railway bridge – but they only cleaned one of the four corners.  They have re-opened the incident we logged and are going to chase their contractor to find out why they didn’t do a full clean up properly.
