News Update : 25-JUL-22

Since the last news update we have:

a) Continued with our twice monthly litter picks :

8 volunteers met at Lindow Common on Wednesday 6th July. We covered Lindow Common, Hickory’s car park, Altrincham Road, King’s Road and Racecourse Road. One volunteer (Ann) went to the Honey Bee and picked down to the Britannia Hotel. We collected at least 6 bags of rubbish and some pieces of carpet.  It was great to welcome a new volunteer (Matt). We also facilitated support for a student from the high school.

8 volunteers met at The King’s Arms on Saturday 9th July. We covered the surrounding area including Alderley Road, the area near the high school and Sainsbury’s car park. We collected at least 9 bags.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

b) Performed our annual tidy up of The Carnival Fields after the Wilmslow Show on Monday 4th. We collected 8 bags and were given a donation of £130 towards our funds. It was lovely to welcome our old friend and ex-committee member Colin. There is a photo of us arriving in this online article :

c) Continued with our solo picks – special thanks to those members who went out on Sunday 3rd July to clean up the “In Bloom” judging route prior to the judges arrival on Monday 4th.

d) Signed up 2 more co-sponsors : A-Plan insurance and Mailboxes etc.  Sponsors donate a minimum of £50 towards our funds.

e) Responded to Hickory’s Smokehouse about their ongoing support.

Hope to see you at the August picks.
