News Update : 31-DEC-22

Since the last news update, we have:

a) Continued with our twice monthly litter picks :

5 volunteers met at Bank Square, on Wednesday 7th December, on a cold but sunny morning. We covered Bollin Link, the Station,  the Leisure Centre, the rail side path, the town centre, Hawthorn Lane and Prestbury Road – collecting at least 11 bags

Unfortunately, the snow meant that there was no litter pick on Saturday 10th December.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

b) Continued with our solo picks.

c) Emailed our members with details of the “soft plastic” facilities available in Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and the Co-op

d) Emailed ANSA to explore whether their budget would stretch to the installation of CEC litter bin at the most easterly pedestrian entrance to Lindow Common

e) Collected a cheque for £300 from the Skipton Building Society office in Grove Street to help us with the funding of litter pick trolleys (more info below). These trolleys cost nearly £200 and so we really welcome this financial support from Skipton.

f) Sent thank you emails to our co-sponsors whose donations have also helped us purchase the first (of hopefully many) litter picking trolleys. The trolleys will allow us to collect more litter, divide recyclable items from the rubbish and leave us less tired after a litter pick as full bags with even a few bottles and cans get very heavy.

g) Updated the bag count totals on our Website.  The annual total for 2022 was 381 – bringing our total to date to 3994.  This is a fantastic achievement – well done everyone

Hope to see you at the January  picks.

Litter Picking Summary 4th->7th January 2017

wilmslow-clean-team-litter-pick-lacey-green-jan-2017For the first scheduled litter pick of 2017, 4 volunteers met in Lacey Green on Wednesday 4th January and collected 9 bags of litter, 1 bag of sand, and assorted bits and pieces. The Park was covered along with parts of Barlow Road, Twinnies Road, Egerton Road and Cliff Road by the Parish Hall.

In addition, one of our volunteers, Ann, collected 2 bags on Knutsford Road.

wilmslow-clean-team-litter-pick-leisure-centre-jan-201711 volunteers met at the Leisure Centre on a damp and murky morning on Saturday 7th January.

We focussed on the town centre including the Leisure Centre car park and pond areas, Alderley Road, Manchester Road, Mill Street, Church Lane, Parkway and Sainsbury’s car park.

Parkway was very dirty and so was Sainsbury’s car park. We will need to find out who is responsible for maintaining the car park and surrounding bushes. We may need a further blitz there in the Spring Clearn which we are planning for March.  There was one car park spot where a dozen half filled bottles of water had been thrown into the bushes – presumably someone likes to go there every day and throw their bottle away.

We were really pleased to welcome 2 new volunteers – newcomers are always welcome – there never seems to be a shortage of litter!

We collected a total of 24 bags, some recyclables, a broken traffic cone and a shopping basket.

So – a great start to 2017 with 35 bags collected.
