News Update : 01-JUN-24

Since the last news update, we have:

a) Continued with our twice monthly litter picks (which formed part of our “Spring Clean” 2024 week) :

There was a small turn out on Wednesday 1st May despite the nice weather.  We met at The Parish Hall and collected 4 bags.

Once again there was only a small turn out on Saturday 4th May.  We met at The Honey Bee and collected 6 bags.

b) Held an extra “Spring Clean” pick.  We met in Sainsbury’s car park on Monday 29th April.  We collected at least 15 bags.  We then went to the Coach and Four for some drinks and a chat.

c) Continued with our solo picks.

d) Reported some fly tipping (at the rear of Broadway Meadow car park) to Cheshire East

e) Continued support for a local student, Joe, who is doing a fantastic job as part of the volunteering section of his Duke of Edinburgh award.

f) Stuart attended the annual town meeting and represented the clean team – presenting information about our activities.

g) Received notification about the “Wilmslow In Bloom” judging day – which will be on 02-JUL-24.  We normally try to clean up the town and the judging route in advance.  We will send out a request for help nearer the time.

h) Received some poster designs from Wilmslow High School pupils.  We will be reviewing these and potentially using them in some signage around the town.

i) Received information from Terry Burgess at CETRA (Colshaw Estate Tenants and Residents Association).  They have re-arranged their big clean up weekend in early June.  We have a schedule pick in the Summerfields area on Wednesday 05-JUN-24 but Terry has asked if we could also help out on Sunday 09-JUN-24 – even if it is just for an hour or so.

j) Had confirmation from our web hosting company that the website will be migrated sometime before 05-JUN-24.  There may be some disruption as part of this exercise – and it is possible that we may struggle to send/receive emails whilst any issues are resolved.  Fingers crossed that the website carries on working !
