Wilmslow Clean Team Post Litter Pick Hot Drink Hickorys 08-JAN-226 hardy volunteers met at Lindow Common car park on Saturday 8th January – despite the poor and very wet weather conditions.  We covered the surrounding area including Altrincham Road.  We collected at least 10 bags (plus some recyclables which were put in a grey bin).  Many thanks to Hickory’s SmokeHouse for their ongoing co-sponsorship and support of the Clean Team – and in particular for the complementary hot drinks – we really appreciated them!

b) Continued with our solo picks.

c) Progressed the involvement of some year 9 pupils at the high school who want to do litter picking for the volunteering section of their Duke of Edinburgh award – including clarifying our position regarding under 18s (i.e. we can lend equipment but are not responsible etc.)

d) Responded to some potential new volunteers who made contact via our website

e) Welcomed another co-sponsor – many thanks to Carlos Lopez.

f) Had an article published on the “Wilmslow’s Way Better” website

Hope to see you at the February pick

Litter Picking Summary – Saturday 12th January 2015

12 volunteers turned out on a very windy morning. We met at the Farmer’s Arms and spread out in all directions.

We collected around 16 bags of litter.

We were delighted to welcome 4 new volunteers – especially one young student from Poyton High School who was volunteering as part of his Duke Of Edinburgh award.

Well done everyone
