Meet at 10AM We will be picking litter in the Hassocks town centre. Both roads and pathways. The streets are quite clean due to the efforts of the parish and Mid Sussex councils. Please bring: Picture ID Strong Boots Gloves Hat Long Trousers or take the consequences if you are in shorts! Water bottle - complete with water Snacks We will aim to be out for 2-3 hours but if you can only manage 30 minutes, that's ok You will be provided with hi-viz vests, litterpickers, and bags Meet at Hassocks station - East side in the front of the Hassocks pub. 10AM We will finish with refreshments somewhere. Six community minded spirits met near the station and picked throughout the town centre. A lot of litter was recovered from the station areas as well as roadsides near the main (Keymer) Road. Overall we were pleasantly surprised by how clean Hassocks is. Well done Mid Sussex Council! Nevertheless we accumulated 5 bin bags of rubbish.
If society had given up fast food and smoking we would only have had one small bag. Most surprising finds of the day: A Ten Pound note A full Ladies handbag containing purse, passport, mobile etc. On returning it to the (hungover) owner barely a murmur of thanks was received!! The above were not connected!! .
A 8km hike around the Hassocks area led by Frances Gilbert with collateral litter busting intended. Nice day for a hike but wet underfoot due to previous day's rain. 5 carrier bags of litter collecte...
