Addison Road

Posted: June 25, 2019 by tidystourbridge in Litter
Another excellent turnout on Thursday for the pick in Addison Road, Brierley Hill where we collected over 20 of our large sacks for rubbish, plus rolls of very smelly carpet, large form pad and metal sheet, plastic car parts, a complete door, wire basket and loads of plastic as usual. This was collected from around Addison Road including near the cemetery and along the canal (please see picture of Doug folding-up his boat). Our team of 14 included Doug, Dave, Dawn, Andy R, David, Pat, Judith, Rachael, Sarah, Gary, Tony, Vanessa, Roger and the return of Andy who helped us at the Saltwells pick.
Thanks for another brilliant effort form our amazing group.

Cycle Route 54

Posted: June 11, 2019 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Last Wednesday (5th June) we litter picked in Penfields around the Bredon & Penfields Roads area and where we’re pleased to say that the area was better than usual. We did however discover down the footpath from Penfields Road to the High Street a considerable amount of rubbish we couldn’t get at and we agreed to revisit this area in the 2019/20 Winter.

Some of the rubbish we did find wasn’t easy to extract but our usual ingenuity prevailed and we managed to get hold of the rubbish by using Dave’s towing rope.

Penfields Rubbish.jpgPenfields TS Team.jpgOverall our team of 13 – David, Alun, Doug, Vanessa, Moon, Adrian, Colin, Gary, Sophie, Simon, Sarah, Judith and Roger – collected 7 large compactor sacks worth, a large tyre, a builders heavy duty cover, slab and building materials, a large case and part of a trolley.

Thank You

Mill Race Lane Improvement

Posted: May 30, 2019 by tidystourbridge in Litter
Mill Race Lane was not as bad as normal on Thursday 23rd May but as usual our team didn’t have too much trouble finding what rubbish was there and it was also good to see litter bins outside the Kids Play Buildings. Our team of 13 collected enough rubbish to fill 12 of our large compactor sacks plus 2 traffic cones and one wheel. Thanks to David, Alun, Vanessa, Doug, Judith, Sophie, Rachael, Pat, Andy, Alison, Tony, Colin and Roger for this haul of goodies.
Two weeks ago we ran our Spring Raffle to boost our funds and we made £151 largely thanks to our sponsors Rachael, Alison, Sophie and Joan who provided the prizes. A BIG thank you to everyone who bought tickets to make this such a successful raffle and our 10 winners were – Dawn, Tim, Jan, Doug, Julie, Tom, Colin, Vanessa, Alun and Alison. On top of this we also had a very generous donation from Maris, so our finances are now in a better shape to replace some of our equipment and help us with our other running expenses.

Pedmore Lane Is Bog Standard

Posted: May 12, 2019 by tidystourbridge in Litter
Another truly incredible effort by the team last night in Pedmore Lane particularly after such a wet cold day. A great turnout of 17 volunteers collecting rubbish that filled 31 of our large compactor sacks, 8 tyres, 1 black wheelie bin without a lid, a ceramic toilet complete with lid, various items of clothing, a road sign, loads of plastics plus 8 compactor sacks of rubbish collected from near Wollescote Park.
This fantastic effort included a number of the team getting in the brook that runs alongside Pedmore Lane to pull out the tyres, bottles and numerous black bags where fly-tippers particular like dropping their rubbish so it’s hidden from easy view from the road. Most of this rubbish had been decaying for well over 12 months so the smell was horrendous but our team of Gary, Colin, David, Dawn, Dave, Curtis, Craig, Matt, Rachael, Sophie, Tony, Helen, Adrian, Jan, Roger, newcomer Charlotte and a welcome return from New Zealand (even though only temporary) from Lee, made sure it was a very successful evening.UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_268e.jpg
