Action not Words – Litter Pick – 17th March 2019

“Action not Words” – Litter Pick – 17th March, 2019.

Following on from last Sunday’s Cafe Church when we talked about caring for the environment, today saw the first suggestion put into place. A host of villagers met at 2pm in the Village Hall car park to don High Viz jackets and be issued with litter pickers and large, tough bin sacks. Four teams set out, to be dropped off at various points around the village to collect all the rubbish from the hedges and verges of several of the roads. After two hours in the sunshine and showers, Cross Lane from the border of Worleston to the village centre, Minshull Lane and Cross Lane from the village centre to the United Reformed Church in Minshull Vernon were all litter picked. Twenty two sacks of rubbish were collected and taken to the tip.

Thank you to Tim and Jane Hough who organised the event and for providing welcome refreshments afterwards in their home. Thanks also to all who helped.
