Mini Litter pick at the Reservoir

Some of the rubbish collected

On Sunday 27th May a few locals gathered in the sunshine at the reservoir to tidy up some of the mess left by others.

5 of us (plus one small person) collected approximately 15 bags of rubbish. This rubbish consisted of a lot of cans, disposable barbeques and far too many full dog poo bags.

It’s so nice to see so many people using the local facilities and walking around our lovely reservoir and it’s a shame that not everyone respects it.

As well as our newly elected councillor Ben Garner,Β  joining us we also had the support of 2 lovely chaps from the council who helped fill bags and they also sprayed some dog poo signs on the paths. There are now quite a few orange signs around the village, lets hope it deters people from leaving dog muck everywhere.

A huge thank you to those who came and it’s nice to meet more people who live near by, the community spirit keeps on growing.

Please watch the events calendar for more tidy up events coming in the next few months. Everyone is very welcome.
