Grand Linton Litterpick!
Linton is a lovely, rural village and it is such a shame that it is disfigured by all the litter that thoughtless folk carelessly discard in our roads and country lanes.
In an effort to combat the litter Linton Parish Council has organised a series of litterpicks, which have now covered all of the roads in the Parish and many of the footpaths too. We have collected over 220 large bags of litter!
We are going to have our seventh event on the morning of Saturday, 5th October 2019. It will cover the lanes West of the A229, as well as Heath Road and the A229 Linton Hill itself.
– start at 10am prompt, from the Berry Gardens factory at Wares Farm in Redwall Lane.
– all necessary equipment will be provided
– refreshments will be provided afterwards
– the Borough Council will collect the litter bags
The event takes about two hours, a few volunteers may do a circular route from the starting point but most will be bussed to a starting point and then will walk back to Wares Farm so we all finish there about 12 noon. Help (or a lift!) will be at hand if you need it, but you will be given full instructions .. no need get your hands dirty, or to lift fridges or other heavy items!
We get a lot of positive comments from volunteers – it is surprising just how satisfying it can be to fill a couple of bags with litter, and look back at a beautiful country lane that once again looks the way it should. If you are able to take part, please email Julie Urquhart. The more volunteers we get, the easier the job becomes and the more clear it will be that we care about our village. In March we had 21 helpers, let us see if we can beat that record next time!
We will continue to have more events at regular intervals in future – so watch this space!
