Our Village Litter Heroes
A massive thanks to everyone who took part and picked up litter in Curry Rivel on a showery Great British Spring Clean weekend. Thank you to Colin Higginson, Annette Stein, Alan Cotteral, Tony Greenaway, Jane Crowley, Jackie and David German, John de Ronde, Vicky Pearson and her daughter, Carolyn and Bob Paton and Andy Jordan.

On Monday recycling days, especially if it has been windy, check near you to see if something needs picking up which have been blown elsewhere. Many tin can lids were found, please make sure they are well inside their tins?

There are also many unsung Heroes who pick up rubbish as they walk around the village. All of your help does make a difference.
