   Almost a record turn-out of volunteers for the Autumn Tidy-Up    24 October, 2015

A huge thank you to all 40 volunteers who braved the unpromising weather on Saturday morning to help with the autumn litter-pick and village tidy-up. In the event, the rain held off till just afterwards, and an impressive heap of binbags were filled – on a rough estimate, between 40 and 50 of them.

Teams picked litter and tidied vegetation from the far end of High Ditch Road to the end of Green End, along Ditton Lane, Horningsea Road, Musgrave Way, and in Bakery, Stanbury and Shepherd’s Closes. Picking was also done on Filly Lane and Wadloes footpath, and on the Recreation Ground and meadow.

The Parish Council is also grateful to Horningsea Parish Council who lend the hoops, reflective jackets, gloves and the majority of the grabbers, to South Cambridgeshire District Council who provide the bags and take away the majority of the litter collected ... and to all the people who unobtrusively clear litter in between the organised tidies.
