Thanks to everyone who turned out to help with our Groves New Year Litter Pick. Some of our litter heroes are in the photo. There was a lot to pick up, and we filled about 20 bags (some more will be added as other neighbours take a turn over the weekend). Our street and alleys now look a lot tidier, and it was great to meet and chat as we worked. And the chocolate rewards went down well!
It would be so much better if people learned to be tidy and respect their environment so days like these were not necessary, but while they are (because we don't want to live in a tip) we will enjoy them.
We're having a community litter pick on Saturday January 22nd from 11:30am to 1pm.
Collect bags, and pickers and gloves from outside the MSA Office on the corner of Upper West and North Groves and come and help clean up our streets and alleys alongside some of your neighbours.
If you prefer to do another time over the weekend, contact Judith to arrange to collect a bag (plus picker and gloves if you need them). Filled bags can be left at the Upper West Grove end of West Grove and will be collected by Biffa on Monday.
