01 May 2015

23:00

Saturday 2 May at 10am and 12 noon. Meet at Dove Cottage. Refreshments and equipment provided. Area to be confirmed on the day. Contact Debenham Parish Council Clerk on 01473 787861 or Just turn up! Photos from the great day are now in the event gallery! As you can see, there is the haul from the lake Steve collected, Lucy's mini system find (taken to the heart research charity shop) , and the tyre Will sourced! Tony and I weighed the bags yesterday- 71kg, including 5kg of tyre! 4 bags were donated by Kevin Voller, who cleared part of the Kenton Road,up to Debenham Garage. There are a few thoughts around for tackling the issue - a request to runners, cyclists, walkers and dog walkers , to report any flytipping or green lane littering - 'positive' signs on entering the village and involving the schools-please let me know if you have some more ideas . Another litter pick day in the autumn is a great idea, I will discuss a date with Gilly, and get back to everyone asap. Joy .

Cronton Pathways Project
We are a revitalised 'clean-up' group of some 20 years' standing which incorporated collaboration with other agencies such as the Environment Agency, TCV, Highways and Groundwork as well as improving communication with our LA, local farmers and schools. Our aims broadened to include two new elements, namely education on litter and LA backed health walks. The latter has enabled people to enjoy our rural pathways, which are now regularly litter-picked, and at the same time build up their stamina in walking for health. In 2011, through fundraising, we were able to purchase two community notice boards to further publicise local events and amenities and our aims. We were very grateful to Groundwork Merseyside for installing them. It continues to be very satisfying to see people reading the notices displayed there and to see some new helpers on our litter-picks and new walkers on our health walks as a result. Both noticeboards were renovated this year, 2018 with help from a grant from Cronton Parish Council, for which we thank them. Our LA, Knowsley MBC, has always been supportive but In recent years, due to funding cuts to LAs we have had reduced contact with them, although they continue to help us by removing the bags of litter we collect on our biannual litter picks. We forged links with one of our neighbouring LAs, Halton, with a view to liaising on littering of our border areas. They provided us with litter-pickers and bags. This has made a big difference to our effectiveness. Updated 24.3.2018
