Trying to communicate “Hello, Hello is there anybody there?”  Tidy Stourbridge calling Earth!

Well with thanks to those Communication Network Junction Boxes for somewhere to pose. Smile Please. Todays champions were as follows: Judith, David C, Dawn and Dave still out litter picking so not on the photo, Vanessa, Rachael, Pat and Andy.                             It was a lovely quiet evening for our litter pick, and a change to be by the canal. We had some lovely conversations with the geese, and had some enthusiastic joggers running past. To hear the welcome sound of bird chatter was lovely, peaceful and calming.

However, the same could not be said for the dog poo and lots of it. Most of it from large dogs I would say. In plastic bags – but chucked in the grass or up into the hedges.

1, 2, 3 “Can you see me?”

Today we collected 1x pair of men’s boots, 1 pillow case, 1 x nappy changing mat,  1 x bottom of a road cone, 1 Bag of crushed cans, 9 Rubbish Bags and another 2 that we added to later.

David and Vanessa.

On the opposite side of the  tow path by the corner of the bridge we could see a large build up of litter, bottles and cans. In the photo above, Vanessa and David ventured down the slope put the rubbish on the sill of the bridge and some of us retrieved it from there and placed into the bags. Latterly it became easier to throw some bags down to them for the litter to be placed directly into.
