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.

Your website editor offers two thoughts:

1. Wouldn't it be nice if more folk took their litter home or looked to place it in the collection receptacles provided around the village?

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
