The aim of this get together was to do a combined clean up of the park at Trinity Fields, Amblecote.

The photographs were taken by one of the Parents of the scouts.

They all did an amazing job and we are very grateful to them, being the boy and girls scouts, the Parents and the Scout leaders.

From Tidy Stourbridge thanks to Roger, Doug and Rachael, with the help of Sophie too who we met up with afterwards.

Tidy Stourbridge came together today to do a Garden Tidy on the ringroad.

First of all could we say a huge Thank you to Diane Gurney  for  the garden tools that were very kindly donated to us . We were delighted as this will enable us to not only assist Stourbridge in Bloom that we were assisting with today, but also this will help with the entry into next years Stourbridge in bloom. This is such a help for our Winter Litter picks too as it will help with overgrown areas.

A crew of 12 today. Roger, Ivor, Tony, Sarah, Helen, David C, Pat, Andy Craig, Geoff, Rachael, and a very warm Hello to Andrew Tromans.

Well today was the Velo Birmingham Cycle Event with 15,000 cyclists. Leaving Birmingham they did a 100 mile circular route, finishing off where they started. We just managed to avoid this for the litter pick meet up point, though we did encounter some cyclists on route. It was in aid of Cure Leukaemia, NSPCC, Alzheimer’s Society and Queen Elizabeth Hospital. A large number of cyclists were from Dudley Borough itself.

The Litter Pick: This was a challenging job today, with many very tiny pieces of paper – sweet wrappers and similar. Many cigarette packets and crisp packets.

Now what are they all looking at?

We set off in all sorts of directions and most of us managed to get trapped somewhere on route with a mass of rubbish.

DSCN6100

11 Bags of rubbish. 1 X Ironing Board, 1 x Wheel Trim, 1 x remainder of a settee plus 1 x Dustbin full of crushed cans,  plastic bottles, glass bottles.

A couple of us went to the IKON Gallery today ( Wednesday ) where their were several pieces of work based on Rubbish – Leaves in drains, skips and it was all very interesting and made a statement.
