Sad Times

Posted: November 2, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Due to further Covid 19 restrictions, the group cannot continue it’s good work legally for at least 4 weeks.

Tidy Stourbridge has always taken a break in the month of December for the festive season so we will review the situation again early in 2021.

Merry Christmas all and Happy New Year

Bevan Road Return Part 2

Posted: October 30, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

The team returned to this forgotten cornwall of Buckpool on Sunday 25th October… new rubbish had appeared from 2 weeks previous and there is still more to do…

Junction Road Clean Up.

Posted: October 22, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Sunday mornings litter pick at Junction Road, Stourbridge went very well and 16 bags were collected, but there is still much more to be done there.

Vodka bottles, lots of drugs equipment, a table lamp, a desk top fan, supermarket trolley minus legs and wheels were collected.

A huge length of orange workmans webbing, kids toys, sweet wrappers, biscuit packet wrappers, fast food containers, pop bottles, more vodka bottles, beer cans, pop cans, playing cards, a tent, a sleeping bag and really random things were also collected.

Thank you to Doug, Tony, Allison and Kevin, Jan and myself.

Bevan Road Revisited

Posted: October 13, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

The group returned to this industrial part of Buckpool after a gap of 18 months… and we wonder why we bother.

A team of 6 started the job all over again on Sunday 11th October under bright skies and collected what they could in 90 minutes.

They will be back.

Mcdonalds, KFC & Greggs Litter

Posted: September 30, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

The sun was out yet again on Sunday 27th September but there was a chill in the air. Rachael, Tony, Ivor, Alison, Kevin & Gary collected endless cups and wrappers from the fast food outlets above all around The Mill Race Lane area.

It appears that none of these outlets are keeping the locality clean enough along with London & Cambridge Properties who own a lot of properties on this site.

Don’t even start us on face masks!!!

Thank you to Doug for the transportation of kit.

Hillfields Road Clean Up

Posted: September 30, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Tidy Stourbridge had never visited this part of town before, yet we were well aware of the rubbish that builds up in the bushes around the school area.

The weather had forgotten it was autumn on Sunday 20th September as Rachael, Tony, Jan, Chris, Alison & Vanessa headed out. Thank you to Doug for the transport of kit too.

This was not one of the dirtiest places in Stourbridge, but the guys were kept busy for an hour or so.

Last Of The Summer Mess

Posted: September 14, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

For the first time in 10 years the group met on a September evening in perfect weather but under fading light.

This was the final meeting for a while in Bells Lane after several weeks of cleaning up the cycle route between Foxhills Road & Ryder Street.

Fly tipping was much in evidence over some of the garden fences at the rear of some houses in Ryder Street. A blind eye has obviously been taken to this over some years.

The winter season now starts with the same Coronavirus rules in place, six volunteers at a time on a first come first served basis.

We will be out there weather permitting from 10 am for 90 minutes every Sunday between the 20th September and the 29th November. Locations will be decided on a week to week before the events themselves.

Please text David on. 07803 200082 with any event dates you would like to attend and with any location suggestions. We are also in need of transport each week as David will be struggling to attend on Sundays. The smaller van can be available though to drive if required.

Bells Lane Wordsley Revisits No. 3 & 4

Posted: August 27, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

The team revisited the green area between Belles Lane and Ryder Street for the 3rd and 4th times on Wednesday 19th August and Tuesday 25th August.

Both evenings were on the damp and breezy side but progress was made on the fly tipping coming from over the fences to the rear of houses in Ryder Street.

We will return here yet again next week.

 

Wordsley Junction Clear Up

Posted: August 7, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Teams of 6 headed out on Tuesday 28th July and Wednesday 5th August to clear up around the canal and River Stour. The group has seen worse in the last 10 years but around 10 sacks of rubbish were collected on both occasions.

Old Wharf Road Revisited Again

Posted: July 24, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

6 of our team revisited Old Wharf Road for the 3rd time in 3 weeks on Wednesday 22nd July to clear up more filth from this street.

There is tons of rubbish on wasteland down there which is more than we can handle sadly, but the street itself is a little cleaner.
