Litter Pick

The weather was at last kind to us and we had a good turn out for our Autumn litter pick. So thanks to everyone who helped on Sunday and at other times over the weekend to keep the common and woods clear of litter.

Three of our volunteers ready for work

Also a special thanks to for their support by provided funding for the litter pickers and rings for our volunteers to use.

Clearing the Triangle

Thanks to Wendy Sally and Tim for their hard work clearing a section of the triangle.

Unfortunately there were not enough of us to clear the whole area but the bottom part has been transformed…..

A date to clear the top section will be organised when we hope to see more volunteers helping us to maintain the common.

Closed

Thanks to Hughes and Salvidge who supplied the material and equipment, and Wayne who did the work, closure of the access used by the travellers to get on to the common has now been completed.

Blocked

Thanks to a local resident a large pile of earth now fills the gap that was used by the travellers to access the common.

This will be smoothed over and become a permanent barrier as part of the existing bund.

Clear-up

A special thanks to the small band of local residents who were up early on Thursday Morning clearing rubbish left by the travellers. A fantastic effort and a job well done.

Thanks also to the Council who collected it the same day.

Reclaimed

Thanks to the Police , our local Councillors and the Estate the Common has been reclaimed from the travellers who broke in and set up camp last Thursday.

Now we just have to clean up the mess.

Dumped Car

The remains of a burned out car dumped on the edge of the Triangle

If anyone has any information about who is responsible for this please contact the police

Disposing of ‘dog waste’….

Please dispose of dog waste in the bins and not in the bushes…

We appreciate dog owners who pick up after their dog but not when the bags are then thrown in the bushes.  Behind the bench near the Coronation trees there were more than 30 plastic bags of dog mess, hanging in the bushes that our volunteers had to deal with !!

Burned out scooter

A part of the litter pick a few strong volunteers with hacksaws and wheelbarrows have picked up the burned out scooter that was dumped in the woods and moved it ready for collection by the Council. Thank you gentlemen.

Autumn Clean-up

Thank you to everyone who turned out to help with the litter pick this weekend especially our youngest volunteers who came in their splendid Halloween costumes.

Litter free woods are not only more enjoyable but are also safer for everyone to walk or play in.

J & J Volunteers

Thanks to a great group of volunteers from Johnson & Johnson who helped us to clear the Triangle this year.

Working very hard…

Almost done..

The results speak for themselves..
