Spring Superclean!

The Thatched Cottage,9 Paul Lane,APPLEBY,DN15 0AR

10 Mar 2013

00:00

An ongoing big clean up of the areas we don't clean on a regular basis. March 10 - Ermine Street south today, as far as the Brigg turn off, resulted in 24 sacks, 3 treys, drums and car bumpers and parts. March 16/17 - Brigg Road past Appleby Woods today, another 9 sacks filled and we collected some tyres from the verge there. Interestingly, although it was quite heavily littered it wasn't anywhere near as bad as when we did it the first time last year by any means. On Sunday 17th we made a start on the short stretch from Broughton up to the hotel. It was disgusting! Although we didn't finish the lane due to the rain we still filled 10 sacks! April 18th - A Litter Pick for George :) April 20th - A march across Risby Warren resulted in 2 sacks of wind blown litter (from the nearby landfill site maybe?)..

St. Briavels Beautifiers
I am the sole member of this group so far and would like to recruit other like-minded, local litter-killers. I've armed myself with a litter-picker-upper stick, bought online for a tenner, and I use recycled, plastic, supermarket bags for the collections. I walk around my village on litter-spotting missions every now and then with my fiance and our baby daughter. Good exercise and the lanes look much nicer. 'Hotspots' for litter are the bus shelter and the playing fields. Great feeling of satisfaction too. My aim is to keep our beautiful village 100% litter-free.

Mashamshire Litter Busters
Mashamshire is an area of outstanding beauty. We are doing what we can to preserve it. We do litter collection along the lanes and footpaths in and around Masham - and we find loads of plastic. We are reducing the impact of micro-plastics on the diet of your children and grand-children! A Masham resident has kindly offered to pay for our group meeting coffees. Many thanks. As we go about Mashamshire we get many kind appreciations from folk that we meet.
