Litter Pickers Apr 2014

Parish Councillors and local residents turned out on behalf of the village community once again, to carry out a 'litter pick' on Saturday 5th April.

David Lyons, ever resourceful (if somewhat whacky!) went for the bicycle-mounted approach. We suspect he was a jousting knight in a former life.

Others took a more traditional approach on foot, and returned to the Parish Council office with bags full of rubbish picked from the verges, paths and hedgerows.

2. How's about joining the team of volunteers for a couple of hours at the next scheduled litter picks:

  • Saturday 31st May
  • Saturday 11th October
