Sunday 13th December. Good news.

Tidy Stourbridge were in Stourbridge on Sunday December 13th 2015 for the presentation of the Waitrose cheque . What a very gratifying act on behalf of all of us at Tidy Stourbridge. It is good to know that we have been acknowledged by the people of Stourbridge for the very hard work that we and Dudley MBC put into keeping Stourbridge as tidy as we are able.

We met up by the River rooms in the car park before 10.00am on a very drizzly wet morning. We made our way over to the Waitrose Supermarket where Graham from our group  very kindly took photographs.

We then split up and started to tidy Stourbridge. The amount of litter – glass bottles, plastic bottles, drink cans,  sweet wrappers, snack containers, plastic wheel hubs – all made for a jolly – wet couple of hours. We even had some large bags with old full large plastic bottles of milk. (Phew these stink when the tops are taken off!) Also some large boxes of breakfast wheat cereal biscuits.

The amount of rubbish collected is the best we can do with the conditions on the day. We could spend an entire day and we still would have plenty more to do. So lets hope for more Volunteers in 2016. Thank you to for all the support we have had from Dudley MBC.

A total of 15 bags of rubbish were collected from 12 of us including Graham are trusty photographer.

As we approach Christmas all that is left to say is Merry Christmas to every one and a Happy New Year in 2016.
