The Annual Village Clean Report
The Annual Village Clean-Up Report. On Saturday March 30th , 20 volunteers took part in our annual village litter picking. Meeting at the Well, at 10am, to collect hi-viz jackets, gloves, litter picking sticks, bags and health and safety instructions, groups were then assigned specific areas to scour. The cleaning of our village sign was once again undertaken by Peter. By 11.30, most had completed their tasks and met up again at the Dabbling Duck for a well-earned coffee and chat.
Those who gave of their time were: David, Fiona, Gillian & Peter, Keith & Margaret, Geoff & Bev, Jim & Sarah, Robina and Richard, Sandy & Brian, Mark, Liz, Rosemary and Phoebe and Robin, who single-handedly dredged Scotsman’s Pit with a rake. Special mention must go to Julian who has cleared 330 bottles from around Mad Dog Lane and Little Massingham. Well done Julian! Your efforts are very worthwhile and appreciated. Thanks are also due to ‘Buttons’, Barry and Robert for dealing with the litter bins each week (not a pleasant task when faced with bags of dog waste which should have been deposited in the dog waste bins provided!)
The annual spring clean has been going for a number of years. Imagine what our village would look like if the rubbish had simply been ignored! Andrew Bickerton
