Last Sunday was our second Sunday litter pick of  2019 and we had a lovely dry morning. With thirty five Volunteers turning out we were able to cover more ground than usual and get to some places we had not picked in a while. Among the thirty five were six Transition Year students helping out and some of them tackled the pathway from Westgate to Clebourne.  Two volunteers picked outside our recognised boundary..

All the efforts produced twenty one bags with eight of those segregated for recycling.  During the week some volunteers were also active. Four bags collected from the Town Centre and along Poulavone..  


Along with sorting waste at the allotment the group also did some grass cutting due to the mild weather of the past month. This mild weather has resulted in a great display of daffodils on the road into Poulavone.  The group have also been busy there weeding and tending to the planting and this has made a huge improvement. The work here should be completed after another couple of visits.


In the past week, more residents have begun clean ups or started to pick up stray litter in their estates.  A few estates still have leaves on kerbs and footpaths. Collections of leaves were made from a few estates last week and those bags will be added to the leaf composting at the allotment.


If you are interested in joining us any Sunday just come along to Quish’s SuperValu West End where we meet up at 11.00 am for our weekly litter pick.
