Cronton Spring Clean-Up

38 Wheatfield Road,,Cronton,Widnes,WA8 5BU

15 Mar 2013

00:00

Volunteers are welcome to join us to litter-pick Sandy Lane and Tue Lane. Meet at Holy Family car park at 10 a.m where litter-pickers, gloves and bags will be available. I don't know if you would call it a successful day, but we collected 55 bags of rubbish in the Cronton area today! Four TCV volunteers cleared areas of Pex Hill and collected 5 bags.Thank you to them. We know it is a never-ending job up there. Thirty Year 5 pupils and two staff from Holy Family joined with two of us to clear Sandy Lane. This time we were supported by Halton Open Spaces as well as Knowsley. They provided us with bags, gloves and pickers which made the job of collecting 20 bags of 'Halton' rubbish much more efficient and we are grateful to them for collecting the bags when we had finished.

Knowsley also collected the bags of rubbish we left at the Knowsley end of Sandy Lane, bringing the total for that lane alone to 30! Six other volunteers from Cronton and Rainhill concentrated on Hall Lane, Cronton Road and Tue Lane, making our final total 55! Thank you to all the volunteers, both young and older and including our PCSTO Dave Rimmer, for your stirling efforts today. We got a bit of a drenching as well so even more thanks for sticking it out! Thanks also to Halton and Knowsley for removing the bags of rubbish so promptly. We do appreciate your support..

Friends of Thringstone
Who are we? We are an environmental group undertaking planting in our village, litter picks, promoting reduction in Co2 and smart driving, and working with the local community to make our village a litter free area. We deliver over 1700 newsletters around our village promoting our message and work with Thringstone Primary School and the local brownie group various events, including a scarecrow festival in June 2011 which brought together all sectors of the community . We held another scarecrow event, in conjunction with Thringstone Methodists, on Saturday 6th July 2013. Our chairman litter picks daily, and is helped by others who litter pick regularly. We try, where possible, to recycle items which can be recycled. We petitioned for extra recycling bins in our village and now have two tin and plastic bottle recycling points and a glass recycling point, and are currently asking for the council to consider ways of recycling acceptable items put in roadside litter bins. Between February 2013 and the end of February 2014, we removed 1,958 bags of litter from the village and woodlands, which we feel is a staggering amount. We have also worked with other groups on environmental issues in the village, and were part of the steering group that saw Thringstone Youth Club win the Children and Young People\\\\\\\'s Green Footprints Award in 2011 for their mural project. We have taken over several flowerbeds and previously untidy and unused areas in the village for planting and offer historical and environmental walks around the village. Please see our website which is www.friends-of-thringstone.org.uk for further details on our group, plus details on our constitution, health and safety policy, equal opportunities policy, parental consent statements and volunteer expenses statement. You can also see on that site details of all our publications. What have we done? In 2009 we won the NW Leicestershire Green Footprints Awards, were awarded an outstanding achievement certificate by East Midlands In Bloom in 2009, and won a gold and silver in the village achievement awards run by the Rural Community Council. In 2010 and were finalists in the Community and Partnerships category of the NWLDC\\\\\\\'s Green Footprints Awards and again in 2013. In 2011 we won The Queen\\\\\\\'s Award for Voluntary Service, something of which we are very proud, especially since 2011 was the European Year of Volunteering,. In 2015 we won the Big Tidy Award at the Keep Britain Tidy Jubilee Awards 2015. In 2021 we won the Leicestershire Live Environmental Heroes Award and also won the Community Organisation Award 2021 with Leicestershire Community Champions. We have a facebook page, and we are also on twitter - address is @Thringstone2. In 2019, our chairman was awarded a British Empire Medal for service to Thringstone and in September 2019, her dog, who accompanied her on all her litter picks, was awarded a commendation from the PDSA.
