Litter Picking Summary 7th + 10th August 2019

We have been very busy this month with 5 organised litter picks, since the last update, rather than the usual 2 – along with some fantastic solo efforts!

9 volunteers met at The Carnival Fields on Monday 8th July to help with the clean up operation after The Wilmslow Show. We collected a bag each.

There were 2 “In Bloom” judging events this year. We did an extra litter pick on Monday 22nd July so that the town was looking at its best for the regional round of judging. 10 volunteers turned up for an evening pick. We collected 12 bags of litter altogether in and around the town centre. 6 additional bags were collected on solo picks.

11 volunteers met at The Honey Bee at 10:00 on Wednesday 7th August. Again – we were delighted to welcome 2 new volunteers. We focused on Altrincham Road down to the airport tunnels – traditionally one of the worst areas for litter in Wilmslow. We collected 15 bags plus several hub caps.  We also reported some fly tipping, near the airport fire station, to ANSA.  The 2nd of our “In Bloom” events was on the same evening – this time in preparation for the National judging (Wilmslow is representing the North West this year). About 8 volunteers met up in the evening collecting a bag each.

Wilmslow Clean Team Stanneylands Road 10-AUG-19Last but not least, despite blustery weather, 8 volunteers met at The Parish Hall, on Saturday 10th August. The park was reasonably litter free due to recent activity for the Bloom judging. We spread out covering the Carr’s (to Twinnies Bridge), Stanneylands Road, Prestbury Road, The Memorial Gardens and the footpaths near Trust Ford. We collected at least 9 bags along with hub caps and some recyclables. We also informed ANSA about a large gas canister that has been washed up near Twinnies Bridge.

So – a massive monthly litter haul of 60 bags.  Well done everyone. Fingers crossed for the “In Bloom” judging later in the year.

We also reported some dangerous overhanging vegetation (on Altrincham Road) to Cheshire East Council

Only time for a brief summary this month …

7 volunteers met at The Leisure Centre On Wednesday 5th July. We collected 12 bags altogether in and around The Leisure Centre, the station forecourt, Hooper’s car park, the area around the library and Chapel Lane.

3 volunteers turned out on Saturday 8th July. We met in Lacey Green and collected 7 bags altogether.

On 10th July some of our volunteers collected 7 bags in the Carnival Field.  This was an organised clean up after The Wilmslow Show.

On Monday 17th July we had an extra litter pick to help prepare the town for the annual “Britain In Bloom” judging. 6 volunteers turned up and 11 bags were collected. We covered Sainsbury`s car park and the surrounding bushes, the Leisure Centre pond area and the walk between the two, Grove street, Bank square, some of Alderley road, Chapel lane, Albert road. Over the previous weekend some of our volunteers did solo picks  on Lindow Common and around Fulshaw.

So – at least 37 bags collected in July.  Well done everyone.
