Glinton Litter Pick

On Saturday 4th March the stalwart band gathered behind the chemist's in Glinton, ready to tackle the litter which disfigures our community.

The team from McDonalds cleared huge amounts up near AMVC. The rest spread out around the village, in the park, along the main road, out towards Northborough and along the footpaths and hedges. 28 bags of rubbish were collected in less than 2 hours - many hands do indeed make light work!
We can do little to counter the antisocial people who open their car windows and throw things out. Parents can, however, encourage their children to be more responsible and dog owners can walk a few yards to a dog bin (of which there are many) instead of throwing the bag on the ground - or worse, hanging it in a tree! There will be another litter pick in the autumn - or earlier if I cant stand the mess! Look out for posters and come along and get involved!
My thanks this time go to: Dave Wragg, his niece, Jessica, Cheryl, Dave, Marcus, Michael and his van, Matt, Philip Clifton, Verity Missin, Geoff Fitzjohn, Claire and Grace Martin, Nick Hughes, Phil and Sheila Giffin, Dave and Mandy, Roger Ebbage and Simon Bysshe. The best team we have had!
Thank you all very much. Thanks too to William, who supplied 
free coffee at the end!
