Penfields Litter Pick Sunday 15th March

Posted: March 22, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

This was another great effort by the joint team of Tidy Stourbridge & Amblecote Labour Party and the hour of rain we had to endure didn’t put us off – mind you we were well kitted out.

It was another pick that needed some advance work because the storm damage had covered most of the litter up, so it was a hedge cutter and strimmer job before we could get started.

The team of Doug, Dawn, Dave, Rachael, Aidan, Ellen & Roger filled 13 of our large compactor sacks with rubbish, plus dragged out a complete trampoline, a toolbox and power drill, wheels & tyres, plastic piping, metal fencing, plastic contains, large tarpaulin, clothing etc etc. Most of this had been around for a number of years and then there was the green waste of branches and brambles which was over 6ft high and 8ft long.

Spring Clean around Dudley Parkrun

Posted: March 9, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

The Yellow Army Running Club have asked us to organise a litter pick around the Dudley Parkrun route (The Dell Stadium, Pensnett) on Saturday 18th April between 1030am and 1230pm.

You do not have to run to take part in the weekly 3.1 mile Parkrun and it would be great to take a team from Tidy Stourbridge in uniform to walk the Parkrun from 9am before the litter pick.

To register with Parkrun visit (Not essential) https://www.parkrun.org.uk/dudley/

Lower Valley Road Clean Up Continues…

Posted: March 9, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

The team headed back to the green space off Lower Valley Road for a 4th time on Sunday 8th March 2020 after a month of delay due to the bad weather.

An industrial fridge was rescued from a small piece of wetland that is alive with toads and sporn at present along with plastic toys, tyres and general rubbish that is inches deep in the bushes. A 30+ year old Walkers crisp packet was also found in the undergrowth.

A litter bin is desperately required on Lower Valley Road as it’s a main thoroughfare from the One Stop Shop in Swan Lane.

The team hope to return on Sunday 22nd March at 10:15am to continue the work there.
