   Big Turnout at the Spring Village Tidy Up    27 May, 2014

There were 33 volunteers, including four children, who helped tidy the village on Saturday 10th May and we were very lucky with the weather.

In all, 30 bags of rubbish and various discarded items were collected, including a rusty bicycle, a tyre, hubcap, bucket, garden shears and a small tent - a large ash branch was also found and was quickly recycled! Teams picked from the eastern end of High Ditch Road to the end of Green End, and from the southern end of Ditton Lane to the A14 access on Horningsea Road, including Musgrave Way, Filly Lane and the eastern footpath to the Recreation Ground. Picking was also done on the Recreation Ground and along Wadloes footpath.

The PC would like to say a very big thank you to the volunteers for all their hard work. We would also like to say a special thank you to Laurie and Mark Woolfenden for their organisation and wonderful refreshments, to Linda Allen for use of her garage and kitchen, to Horningsea PC for the loan of litter picking equipment and to Ray Smith for collecting the bags of rubbish from various points around the village.

Many volunteers pick litter around the village between official Tidies Up and we are very grateful to them!
