3 May 2019



A number of residents have asked whether the Parish Council could arrange for a regular monthly litter-picking session - rather than the more sporadic ones we have had in the past.

At May's Parish Council meeting, it was decided to take this idea up - and the proposal is to henceforth have a litter-picking session on the first Saturday in every month, starting from June 1st. Obviously this won't be convenient to everyone every month, but we hope that there will be at least a viable number each time - we'll see how it goes.

The plan is to meet at 1000 at the Institute on each occasion (and Sue Beckett says there will be refreshments at the Institute afterwards on each occasion!).

So that we know roughly what numbers we will have each time, it would be very helpful if you could email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. during the week prior if you intend to be there - thanks.

Thank you to everyone for their keenness in getting this going.
