This morning 22 people turned out for a litter pick around Purbrook filling 51 bags and collecting other assorted rubbish including a radiator, half a scooter, road signs and a 5ft long 10” diameter heavy duty plastic pipe!
We were joined by our local MP, Alan Mak, who ‘mucked in’ with everyone else. Special thanks to Tom Mackinnon, who organized the event as part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Finally a really big ‘thank you’ to the Village Bakery in Purbrook who opened up especially on a Sunday morning to serve a full English breakfast on completion.
A really successful morning; the weather helped, perfect conditions.
61 bags of litter have been collected so far this year and the total since records began in November 2011 is 636 bags.
