Volunteers help with park clean up

On Saturday morning I was joined by Sixteen volunteers and local residents joined Councillor Craig Browne in the village park on Saturday, 1st June, to help litter pick following the recent illegal traveller encampment.

ANSA had already started the clean-up operation on Friday, but on Saturday the group collected a further nine sacks full of rubbish which have been left at the railway station, ready for collection by ANSA this week.

Councillor Craig Browne said "I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who gave up their time to come and help out and especially to Judy Turner from Alderley Edge in Bloom for helping me to co-ordinate. In addition to collecting ordinary litter, we also found both human and animal waste, a dead cat and twelve unopened bottles of beer!"
