Sep 2016 Litterpick - in Oakington/Histon/Girton area
Sat 3rd September 2016 at 08.00 - 12.00
Meet David at 9am at Gretton School. Let him know numbers so enough equipment and high vis jackets can be organised. Organiser David Adamson.
Today we were lucky to have a sunny and dry morning for our work.
Paul was so keen he had finished his Oakington area by 8.30am !
David and Ian Copeland whistled along the Histon leg while Sian & Alan with 5 others got busy around Gretton School and along the Girton leg.
Altogether we found over 12 big bags of rubbish - its amazing what is abandoned on the grass verges and hedgerows. Our haul included cans, plastic bottles, sharp metal, sandwich wrappers, cigarette packets, glass bottles (vodka), a small clog, car trim, a bicycle pedal, 2 buckets, 2 pillows and a motorbike helmet visor !
We had a few people who took the time to stop and say thank you for our efforts, which was very nice !
Thank You to all involved, including those that donated bin space to take the full bags.
WATCH OUT FOR OUR NEXT COLLECTION DATE - Do Come Along - Many Hands Make Light Work !
This time we met at 9am near the Gretton School where there is plenty of parking.
David distributed equipment and high vis Rotary tabards.
Bag hoops, plastic bin bags and long-armed pickers were available.
Bring tough gloves and wear solid footwear and long trousers are recommended.
