Saltwells Return

Posted: January 21, 2019 by tidystourbridge in Litter
What an absolutely brilliant turnout and litter pick on Sunday 21st January 2019. It broke all records for us with 36 volunteers and 86 large compactor sacks plus over 20 of the smaller black ones, 4 traffic cones, a shopping trolley, 8 tyres, a metal road works sign, part of an exercise bike and loads of plastic.
Over 20 of the volunteers were form Saltwells Green & Clean team plus the National Conservation Volunteers. There were 14 of us from TS – Colin, Doug, Sophie, David, Dave, Dawn, Gary, Maris, Vanessa, Pat, Andy, Roger and welcome to newcomers Simon & Sarah.
A special mention goes to Colin who waded-in to the freezing brook to collect 3 tyres – above & beyond the call of duty.
Thanks Chris who getting a great turnout from your group and their tremendous efforts.3 - 2 (3).jpg3 - 1 (17).jpg3 - 3 (3).jpg3 - 2 (4).jpg3 - 1 (18).jpg3 - 3 (4).jpg3 - 2 (5).jpg3 - 1 (19).jpg

Lye By-pass Is Sinking In Filth!!!

Posted: December 11, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Tidy Stourbridge visited Lye back in April and have done on many occasions in the last 10 years…

A minority in the village appear to be suffering from the “Couldn’t care less” attitude that is now the norm in many metropolitan areas across the UK and government seems to have no answers on how to stop the decline.

We have no doubt we will be back yet again soon

Merry Christmas

Christmas Doo Booked

Posted: December 6, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

We’re booked in at the Waggon & Horses for Sunday 16 December from 7pm.

The Waggon & Horses thought we were a “Great Bunch !” and have reduced our food bill this year as a thank you.

This is much less than last year, all  because “of the amazing work TS does for our town”, she said.

Tidy Stourbridge will hold a Christmas Raffle to help boost our funds. There are some great prizes and tickets will be on sale at Sunday’s Litter Pick and at our Christmas Do – prizes include Bottles of Jack Daniels, Bells Whisky, Mulled Wine, 6 free yoga classes plus a number of other wonderful prizes. Please help the cause.

David Colley of Clent View Carriers has kindly returned his fuel donation of £120.00 which will be put behind the bar.

On Sunday 25th November we collected 17 large sacks of rubbish, a large builders bag of litter, large fridge/freezer, 1 1/2 bags of cans, a large collection of metal, a full size mattress (springs only) and a good selection of clothes.

Our superb team were Alison, Vanessa, Sarah, Sophie, David, Dave, Dawn, Tony, Pat, Andy, Doug, Gary and Roger plus 2 Policemen. Last Monday Dudley Street Cleaning were informed of this rubbish and also about the troughs in Dove Drive car park.

Poor David was questioned by the local bobbies after a worried resident in the area reported lots of people walking around with hi-viz jackets on… you can imagine their surprise when David informed the we were cleaning up the area.

David calmed down after a pint and a bag of scratchings in the pub.3 - 1 (11).jpg3 - 1 (12).jpg3 - 1 (13).jpg

Junction Road Dumping Ground

Posted: November 6, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

This rubbish was mainly along the single track road that runs parallel to the railway track near the Bridge in Junction Rd. and also along the edge of the playing field. There was rubbish and fly-tipping in the ditches on the one side and then on the bank the other side which was similar to what we found on the bank at the end of Brook Crescent, Wollescote. Needless to say we couldn’t clear all the litter & fly-tipping but we made a good dent in it.

The team of Jan, Helen, Doug, Tony, Gary, Pat, Andy, Dawn and Roger were brilliant as usual. The collection included; 25 large sacks of rubbish, 1 shopping trolley, 1 large sheet of metal, kids toys and for the first time 2 very heavy traffic light management trolleys, plus loads of other odds & ends – a BUMPER CROP indeed.

Good Evening, the weather forecast has now taken a turn for the worst tomorrow with over a 90% chance of heavy rain in the morning.

With that in mind we will put tomorrow’s litterpick back 1 week to next Sunday
