Many thanks to all her helped litter pick on the 12th. We did all the village and quite a bit outside it. It is amazing how much and what sort of rubbish there was to be found – energy drinks in particular plus beer cans – some people literally do drink and drive but are then happy to litter the countryside rather than their car or van.
Below is a picture of everyone enjoying a post-pick bacon bap, oat cake and cup of tea on the village website.
If you are interested in helping out next time let me know – this time word of mouth rapidly meant we easily had enough without any more advertising, plus a good haul of youngsters involved, which helps convey a sense of civic responsibility for our village. Well done to everyone!
A word of thanks to Maidstone Borough Council – they had previously provided hi-vis jackets, gloves, bags and litter picking sticks so that we can do this as and when – normally before everything gets too abundant (in spring) or starts to drop (in the autumn).
