Tidy Tetbury Team Launch

Tetbury,GL8 8AA

17 Aug 2013

23:00

We'll be at The Rec on Sunday 18th August from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm. We're going to do a tidy-up of The Rec along with the volunteers from the Dolphins Trust and there will be a free burger and a drink for all of you who come along and help. Do please join us at any time between 11.00 and 2.00 ! A new campaign to fight litter and tidy up the town had a highly successful launch yesterday, Sunday 18th August, when some 30 volunteers turned up at the Recreation ground to clear the whole area of rubbish. Sparked off by a combination of Dolphins Recreation Centre, Tetbury Town Council, Cotswold District Council and a nationwide volunteer organisation CleanupUK, the volunteers' day attracted helpers from all ages, including Tetbury’s mayor, Liz Farnham, and was supported by Tetbury Rugby Club, who supplied refreshments. Barry Gibbs, Chairman of Dolphins Recreation Centre Trust who manage the recreation ground, was delighted with the turn-out.

“It was really great to see so many young people helping to tackle the litter problem yesterday. We have a beautiful recreation ground here in Tetbury with many facilities, but do have to respect it by everyone keeping it rubbish-free. We filled 15 sacks of the stuff yesterday.” George Monck, Chief Executive of CleanupUK, who lives locally, hopes that this co-operation between the local groups can continue and already other areas in the town have been identified for similar treatment. .

Mossley Hill
Having written to the council and asked them what they're doing about the litter in the area I thought this looked interesting. Not sure if there are any other people around Mossley Hill who aren't keen on the litter, particularly around Rose Lane but I wondered there might be enough people to do a group litter collection sometime. It's so nice to go out and find the street clean and tidy, it would be great if it happened more often.
