Thanks to all the litter pickers who helped out today for our Spring Litter Pick. It was an excellent turn out and the results of this mornings work are clear for all to see…
In support of our efforts to eliminate dog waste and in particular the plastic bags that are being left on the common, an additional waste bin has been installed. This is adjacent to the layby at the junction of Lane End Road and Horns Lane. The new bin was installed by the Society but has been adopted by the Council who will take care of emptying it.
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.
Also a special thanks to for their support by providing funding for the litter pickers and rings for our volunteers to use.
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.
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 !!
