A very warm, hot, claggy humid evening before we started our litter pick. Following the ritual start with the dual of the litter picks, we then set off in our various directions singing –

Hi Ho – Hi Ho,  Tis a litter picking that we go, Hi Ho Hi hoooooh Ohhhh!

A total of 13 of us managed to collect 23 bags of rubbish and apart from this and what you can see above, we also found 1 sleeping bag, 2 large signs 3 foot x 3 foot, several large pieces of plastic and 3 wheel hub caps. Also 1 disgusting black rubbish sack was found on the dual carriage way full of dirty nappies. There is no need for this – why do people do it. In the middle of the road???

We were longer out this evening . David took these photos, myself –  (Rachael) and Graham were not back when this photo was taken and 2 of the team had to leave before it was taken.

The usual drink cans, plastic bottles,  glass bottles, sweet / snack wrappers.

My thanks go out to all who turned up this evening as I know Davids thanks do.

The next litter pick will be on: Wednesday August 3rd at 7.00pm. Meeting at The River Rooms, Mill Race Lane, Stourbridge, DY8 1 JN
