Mill Race Lane Again & Again & Again…

Posted: March 23, 2022 by tidystourbridge in Litter

A great turnout on Sunday 20t March for the Mill Race Lane litter pick and plenty of rubbish collected from some quite difficult places to litter pick.

Our brilliant of 14 was Dave and Dawn, Dave W, Rachael, Ivor, Doug, Julia, Martin, Maris, Helen, John, Jana plus Theo (4 years old) and Roger.

We collected 28 black bags of rubbish, part of a shopping trolley, 2 traffic cones, kids car seat, 8 syringes plus various pieces of plastic and metal some of which were retrieved from the River. Apologies to Helen, Jana and Theo for missing you off the photos below.

On Sunday evening Rachael, Dave, Dawn, Maris and Roger joined Jana’s Water Awareness event at the Claptrap in High St Stourbridge. It was an excellent event and really got over the importance of our waterways and oceans to the survival of our planet and the need to ensure in particular that plastics don’t pollute this vital resource. It also helped us promote the work of Tidy Stourbridge in removing rubbish before it gets into our water systems and we were well received by a full audience at the Claptrap. 

Next litter pick will be on Sun 3rd April starting at 10am and will be covering the green area from the Viaduct to Stamford Road that runs adjacent to Birmingham Street. Best parking is by turning right into Sandyacre Way then immediately right again into old Birmingham St  DY8 1JH. The van will be parked across the road on a small green spot.
