Penfields Litterpick

Posted: July 12, 2021 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Tidy Stourbridge held a Litter pick at The Ten Arches, Penfields Estate on Wednesday July 7th 2021

The team collected 7 bags and something that resembled a swing maybe.
It was the Night of the “Footballs coming Home,” hence the shorter Litter picking time.

We had a lovely New lady join our group.

So thanks to Colin, Judith, Gary, Allun, Mirella, Lucas and his Mum Becky.

The usual sweet wrappers, crisp packets, cans, plastic bags, plastic bottles, sleeping bag.

Next up is a clean up of the Parkrun Route from The Dell in Pensnett at 630pm on Thursday 15th July.

Extra Amblecote Clean up

Posted: May 3, 2021 by tidystourbridge in Litter

We had an excellent litter pick around the large flats in Trinity Road on Saturday and cleared a tremendous amount of rubbish. Managing to clear so much rubbish was also due to the help Amblecote Labour had from Wollaston Labour Party Members and Tidy Stourbridge.

Most to the mess was around the back of the last block in Trinity Road.

Our team of 9 were; Doug, Ellie, Adam, Rachael, Ellen, Chris, Rachel, Nigel and Roger managing to pick over 16 bags of rubbish, a large builders bag of waste, 2 mattresses, a carpet and a load of wood. It was good to hear a lot of thanks from residents seeing all this rubbish that we collected.
