Our Groves Clean-Up is next Saturday on March 30. Come along anytime between 11am and 2pm. We will have prizes and goody-bags and we're asking everyone if they can to bring some cake or biscuits to share. Let's make it a fun community and family time together doing something positive.
Our clean-up is registered with Keep Britain Tidy and our number of volunteers and numbers of bags filled will be counted in the national statistics. Look at our clean-up here.
Who would have thought re-cycling could be so interesting? 17 of us visited the Re-cycling Centre at Sharston and were given a tour of the Materials Recovery Facility and its huge machine that sorts out metals and plastics. These can be sold on for lots of money to help with the costs of our rubbish disposal, and keep our Council Tax for things like children's services. But... if something goes into the wrong bin and gets into the machine it can cause a breakdown, costing lots of money to fix! Another reason to recycle correctly: its good for our planet, our pockets and our services. We also had games, a quiz, and learned that our rubbish can also be used to generate electricity and make compost for growing fruit and vegetables. Good fun, good company.
