Junction Road Dumping Ground

Posted: November 6, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

This rubbish was mainly along the single track road that runs parallel to the railway track near the Bridge in Junction Rd. and also along the edge of the playing field. There was rubbish and fly-tipping in the ditches on the one side and then on the bank the other side which was similar to what we found on the bank at the end of Brook Crescent, Wollescote. Needless to say we couldn’t clear all the litter & fly-tipping but we made a good dent in it.

The team of Jan, Helen, Doug, Tony, Gary, Pat, Andy, Dawn and Roger were brilliant as usual. The collection included; 25 large sacks of rubbish, 1 shopping trolley, 1 large sheet of metal, kids toys and for the first time 2 very heavy traffic light management trolleys, plus loads of other odds & ends – a BUMPER CROP indeed.

Good Evening, the weather forecast has now taken a turn for the worst tomorrow with over a 90% chance of heavy rain in the morning.

With that in mind we will put tomorrow’s litterpick back 1 week to next Sunday

Ivy Knackered!

Posted: September 17, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Tremendous hard work was done by TS on clearing ivy, 7 large sacks of rubbish, 6 suitcases, an armchair and a bicycle on Sunday 16th September from around the South side of The Ring Road.

Vanessa, Alison, Dave C, Sophie, Jan, Colin, Helen, David H, Roger, Dave & Dawn all helped on this one.

The photos show Vanessa & Alison enjoying removing the ivy, rubbish collected & the repaired planter in it’s new position.

Pastures New

Posted: September 6, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Two of our long term volunteers of the past are moving on to pastures new over the next few months.

Trish & Lee Fisher were a big part of the group back in the early days before their work took them away from us.

They are bound for a new life in New Zealand and we wish them the very best and thank them for their time with us.

Here are a few highlights….


Summer Ends With A Visit To Church

Posted: September 5, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

There were 20 of us at the last Wednesday pick of the Summer and what a brilliant job everyone did with 25 large sacks of rubbish, 2 bollards, 1 push chair, 1 very large heavy bench, 1 cycle wheel, 1 office chair, 1 very large arm chair plus 2 large bags of cans.

The group met at Stourbridge Bus Station and headed around the festering St Johns Church which has become a dumping haven for the thieves of our town. Dozens of 7 inch singles were recovered with lots of goods from what looked like the stores at the recent Stourbridge Carnival.

The group working last night was Dave, Dawn, Vanessa, Alison, David, Sarah, Colin, Alun, Gary, Helen, Adrian, Moon, Jan, Doug, Judith, Pat, Andy, Sophie, Tony & Roger.
