News Update : 31-OCT-21

Since the last news update we have:

a) Continued with our twice monthly litter picks :

6 volunteers met at Banks Square on Wednesday 6th October.  We covered the town centre and collected at least 8 bags.

Wilmslow Clean Team Litter Pick - Lacey Green October 20214 volunteers were out on Saturday 9th October.  3 met at Lacey Green Park and covered the surrounding area.  The 4th covered Knutsford Road, Alderley Road, the town centre, Manchester Road and Styal Road. 7 bags were collected altogether.

 

 

As always, we were pleased to welcome some new faces

b) Continued with our solo picks.

c) Welcomed a volunteer (Alistair) who was given time off as under his employer’s (Pets At Home) scheme.

d) Held a committee meeting.  The main focus was the structure around sponsorship by local companies.  Wilmslow Town Council has been our major sponsor recently with a significant grant.   We agreed on a standard approach to co-sponsorship from other local companies whereby they will donate £50 and be given a window sticker and a mention on our webpage :
We have already signed up Castletons Accountants to this scheme.

Hickory’s Smokehouse are also being considered a co-sponsor because they are providing us with a room for meetings, refreshments etc. They are very keen to help us as much as they can.

e) Responded to a business called “Warner House” who are exploring the possibility of “Employee volunteer days”

Hope to see you at our November picks – new volunteers welcome.
