Litter Pick

On Saturday as part of the Conservative's Green Action Day, I joined our councillors in Overslade ward, Kam Kaur and Fiona Barrington-Ward on a litter pick. Kam assembled a group of youngsters, I got pickers, high visibility vests, bin bags and gloves from the Council depot and we set off around the ward. It was astonishing just how much rubbish we found and with one of our local papers asking us to let them know about the most unusual item we found, Sara pulled a kids scooter out of a hedge. Hard work in the sunshine, but it was good to see the fruits of our hard work and to be thanked by several of the residents we met on the way round.
