6 volunteers met in Bank Square on a wet morning for our last litter picking event of the year. As well as being a busy morning for Christmas shoppers it was also Artisan Market day – so hopefully our presence in the town centre was noticed and we might attract some new volunteers. We decided to do an hour’s pick today (rather than the usual 2 hours) but we still managed to collect 9 bags of rubbish and the odd hub cap. This has been left in Bank Square for the council to collect.
We covered various roads in and around the town centre including Bank Square, Grove Street, Station Road, Alderley Road and Water Lane.
We all then retired to Hawthorns Deli for a nice warm drink, some cake and good chat.
Well done everyone and hope to see you all in the Coach & Four on Monday night for our Christmas drinks.
It was our first birthday party on 14th October 2014 and so we had a party to celebrate. Thanks to the Old Dancer on Grove Street for allowing us use of the upstairs room.
The photos show some of the volunteers celebrating along with a display board showing some of our work and achievements. Big thanks to Daisy for making us a cake (nom nom nom).
It has been a good year. We have organised over 30 scheduled litter picking events and collected over 600 bags of rubbish. Volunteers have also picked litter outside of the scheduled events. We believe that we are making a difference and that Wilmslow is becoming a much cleaner place.
We are 1 year old on 14th October.
We are getting together to celebrate at the Old Dancer in Grove Street. We will have an area reserved upstairs.
Oh – and there will be cake !
Hope to see you there.
