Litter Pick 01

It is a sad truth that some folk are inclined to drop litter or throw it from their car windows rather than walk a few meters to the nearest waste bin, or take their rubbish home for appropriate disposal.

As a result, our lovely village footpaths, roads, hedgerows and public spaces can accumulate drinks cans, food wrappers, cigarette boxes and small scale waste, giving the impression that residents just don't care.

If, like most of us, you like the village to look clean and tidy, why not donate an hour or two of your time and join the group of volunteer litter pickers this coming Saturday morning?

It's a light walking activity that can be a wonderful opportunity for families and local folk of all ages to get out in the fresh air and explore the nooks and crannies of our delightful village, while simultaneously contributing to the good of the community.

Hi-viz tabards and hand-operated litter pickers (the children love using these!) will be provided, but you are advised to wear stout shoes and gloves for your own comfort.

Simply turn up to the parish council office on Saturday morning 11th July anytime from 9.30am , where a friendly member of the team (usually village celebrity and super councillor, John Wheeler — autographs available on request) will provide you with the kit.

The parish council office is located on the outside corner of the village Hall, nearest to the Royal Mail post box in Banks Park.
