Yet Another Corbett Clean Up

Posted: January 25, 2019 by tidystourbridge in Litter

On Sunday 6th January 2019, Tidy Stourbridge cleared all this up from around Corbett Hospital. Our efforts felt wasted though when there were complaints that we did not remove the rubbish afterwards….. well we have no facilities to do this and Dudley MBC will normally collect within a couple of days.

Let’s hope they join us in future as an apology to those who gave up 2 hours that morning.

Saltwells Return

Posted: January 21, 2019 by tidystourbridge in Litter
What an absolutely brilliant turnout and litter pick on Sunday 21st January 2019. It broke all records for us with 36 volunteers and 86 large compactor sacks plus over 20 of the smaller black ones, 4 traffic cones, a shopping trolley, 8 tyres, a metal road works sign, part of an exercise bike and loads of plastic.
Over 20 of the volunteers were form Saltwells Green & Clean team plus the National Conservation Volunteers. There were 14 of us from TS – Colin, Doug, Sophie, David, Dave, Dawn, Gary, Maris, Vanessa, Pat, Andy, Roger and welcome to newcomers Simon & Sarah.
A special mention goes to Colin who waded-in to the freezing brook to collect 3 tyres – above & beyond the call of duty.
Thanks Chris who getting a great turnout from your group and their tremendous efforts.3 - 2 (3).jpg3 - 1 (17).jpg3 - 3 (3).jpg3 - 2 (4).jpg3 - 1 (18).jpg3 - 3 (4).jpg3 - 2 (5).jpg3 - 1 (19).jpg

Lye By-pass Is Sinking In Filth!!!

Posted: December 11, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Tidy Stourbridge visited Lye back in April and have done on many occasions in the last 10 years…

A minority in the village appear to be suffering from the “Couldn’t care less” attitude that is now the norm in many metropolitan areas across the UK and government seems to have no answers on how to stop the decline.

We have no doubt we will be back yet again soon

Merry Christmas

Christmas Doo Booked

Posted: December 6, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

We’re booked in at the Waggon & Horses for Sunday 16 December from 7pm.

The Waggon & Horses thought we were a “Great Bunch !” and have reduced our food bill this year as a thank you.

This is much less than last year, all  because “of the amazing work TS does for our town”, she said.

Tidy Stourbridge will hold a Christmas Raffle to help boost our funds. There are some great prizes and tickets will be on sale at Sunday’s Litter Pick and at our Christmas Do – prizes include Bottles of Jack Daniels, Bells Whisky, Mulled Wine, 6 free yoga classes plus a number of other wonderful prizes. Please help the cause.

David Colley of Clent View Carriers has kindly returned his fuel donation of £120.00 which will be put behind the bar.

HALLO HALLO WHAT’S GOING ON ‘ERE THEN

Posted: December 6, 2018 by tidystourbridge in Litter

On Sunday 25th November we collected 17 large sacks of rubbish, a large builders bag of litter, large fridge/freezer, 1 1/2 bags of cans, a large collection of metal, a full size mattress (springs only) and a good selection of clothes.

Our superb team were Alison, Vanessa, Sarah, Sophie, David, Dave, Dawn, Tony, Pat, Andy, Doug, Gary and Roger plus 2 Policemen. Last Monday Dudley Street Cleaning were informed of this rubbish and also about the troughs in Dove Drive car park.

Poor David was questioned by the local bobbies after a worried resident in the area reported lots of people walking around with hi-viz jackets on… you can imagine their surprise when David informed the we were cleaning up the area.

David calmed down after a pint and a bag of scratchings in the pub.3 - 1 (11).jpg3 - 1 (12).jpg3 - 1 (13).jpg
