7 volunteers met at The King’s Arms on Wednesday 4th October. We collected 12 bags on Alderley Road and the surrounding area. Thanks to Helen for standing in as a leader on this event.
Despite the rainy conditions we had a very good turn out of 11 volunteers on Saturday 7th. We met at Lindow Common and focussed on the Common and surrounding roads – e.g. Altrincham Road, Some of our volunteers headed into Wilmslow and tidied up Little Lindow and the surrounding roads including, Hawthorn Street The Lindfield Estate and Chapel Lane. We collected 16 bags and 2 hub caps.
So 28 bags altogether in October – well done everyone
Finally we would like to thank the Boddington Arms for providing some of our volunteers with a free coffee – an unexpected and welcome surprise.
7 volunteers met at the King’s Arms on Wednesday 5th October. We covered the full length of Alderley Road (from the A34 roundabout to the Leisure Centre), the ‘town’ end of Knutsford Road, Chapel Lane, Victoria Road, Albert Road, Holly Road South, Bedells Lane, Hawthorn Road and part of Altrincham Road by Little Lindow. We collected 13 bags of litter and an old tyre. A further bag of cans were recycled. We were very pleased to have a new volunteer with us.
7 volunteers met at Lindow Common on Saturday 8th October. We covered Lindow Common, Racecourse Road, Altrincham Road (down as far as Waters) parts of Mobberley Road etc. We collected 10 bags of litter and a wheel hub. We took home 3 smaller bags of cans and bottles for re-cycling. We also reported 2 tyres that have been fly tipped near Lindow Common to the council.
Some of our volunteers have also been out and about on their own. Viv collected 3 bags around Gorsey Road, Broadwalk etc. Ann collected 2 bags in Stoney Lane, South Oak playground, South Oak Lane and Nursery Lane.
So, we have collected at least 28 bags of litter and some recyclables.
We are now planning the November litter picks. New volunteers are very welcome. We are delighted that “Q Hotels” are planning to send 4 of their team to help out in November.
5 volunteers met at The Kings Arms on Wednesday 7th October. We collected 6 bags in the surrounding roads – e.g. Bedells lane, Chapel Lane, Albert Road, Victoria Roads and Alderley Road. The picture shows some fly tipping in the wooded area by Sainsbury’s car park – this has been reported to the council.
A much nicer day on Saturday 10th saw 9 volunteers meet at the Boddington Arms. Some of us headed of down Altrincham road to Waters and just beyond whilst others tackled Racecourse Road, Lindow Common, the areas around Kings Road and Broad Walk, Altrincham Road up to Little Lindow and some of the surrounding side streets. 3 bags were collected by the council during the morning. We left 10 more bags at the Boddington Arms. A few more bags were left at other locations around the town – the council were informed and they will collect them. So – we probably collected about 14 bags altogether.
We are experimenting with a new strategy of sifting through the bags at the end of the day and removeing all the recyclable items.
