2018 Rubbish bags 11 March

A big thank you to all the amazing volunteers this weekend.

Most of the main roads and lanes have been litter picked in our village Spring clean. There are still a couple of roads to be done this week.

Many thanks to Freya, Matilda, Vicky, Robert, Andy, Claire, Tony, Ted, John, Annette, Alison and Geoff.

I would also like to thank South Somerset District Council for their valuable support.

They loaned us the pickers, gloves, high visibility jackets, black bags plus a first aid box (which luckily we didn't need!) and wipes. Plus they are also collecting the rubbish bags seen here in the car park.

Last of all thank you to the quiet picker upperers.

Those who pick up rubbish when they see it on our streets. Sometimes we need to pick up after the rubbish collections; the odd tin lid or things that have blown out of our recycling boxes.

Written by the Chairman of your Parish Council — Madelaine King-Oakley

Yet, he leaves SSDC without a five-year housing supply and in a...
