Sunday 8th January 2017: From a very misty / foggy cold start – Jackson Street Car Park Lye. DY9 8HE

Posted: January 11, 2017 by tidystourbridge in Litter, News, PicknPint

With thanks to the following volunteers:

David, Colin, Garry, Geoff, Craig, Matt, Helen, Andy, Pat, Dawn, Vanessa, Steph, Holly, Rachael, Graham (Todays Photographer), and a welcome to our latest recruit Sophie C.

Approximately 26 Bags of rubbish, 2 sacks of crushed cans, 4 tyres, 1 office chair, 5 Green fabric/plastic bread or fruit vegetable boxes and other miscellaneous objects.

The general feelings are that not much has changed. it is sad to see Lye always in this state. For the newer members the feeling was  – how much rubbish is around. There are businesses who look after the outside premises and keep them clean as best as they can.  A few of the volunteers took the opportunity to cut back brambles in order to stop them encroaching on the footpath.

The next Tidy Stourbridge Litter Pick will be on Sunday 22nd January from 10.00am at The Thorns Inn, The Thorns, Quarry Bank, Dy5 2JY.

    Ah come on, not much has changed? That’s now 26 bags less, the other junk, and the community spirit, the people who might think twice next time about throwing that bottle after seeing you all last week.
