Despite medical issues and poor weather, members of the litter picking group still managed to clear 32 bags of rubbish from our countryside, paths and parks during January and for that I thank them.
It can actually be quite addictive. Some members set themselves a time limit of perhaps half an hour or so but when that time is up they see another piece of litter which just has to be picked up, then another, and another…… and before long they’ve been out much longer than anticipated. Others set themselves a goal of clearing a particular area whilst some take their litter picking stick and plastic bag (and dog!) with them when going out for a gentle walk thus killing two birds with one stone. Any of them with a Fitbit are certainly getting their steps in!
Should anyone wish to join the group or require further details please contact me as per the group information at the end of the newsletter.
