Volunteers to help spruce up the bypass

Volunteers will be coming together this weekend to take part the Keep Britain Tidy 'Great British Spring Clean' campaign.

Alderley Edge in Bloom Group and Nether Alderley Parish Council have organised to litter pick the Alderley Edge Bypass this Sunday, 2nd April, commencing at 11:00 am.

They will be setting off at 11am from the Chelford Road bridge over the bypass - near to the Alderley Edge village cemetery.

If you are interested in joining the litter pickers this Sunday please contact Stewart Dyer from the Bloom group by email [email protected].

Stewart commented "We have pledged to fill over 40 bags of litter this Sunday. We welcome local residents to join in and help clear the worst of the rubbish that litters the bypass. We can help with equipment and hi-viz jackets. Ansa Services are lending us some litter picking equipment and supplying litter bags. The full bags will be picked up by Ansa early next week."

Leslie Cox, chair of the Bloom group, said "We pick litter all year round. We meet at the station car park every Monday morning at 10:00 am and pick for an hour before retiring to the village for a well-earned cup of coffee. It's great exercise with an important social element. I'm sure the bypass pick will be a big success and it's great to have our friends from Nether Alderley Parish join us."

The weather is looking good for Sunday.
See the ‘before and after’ situation for yourself.
Let’s have a big turnout to clear as much litter as possible. Great to have the support of Nether Alderley Parish Council and Alderley Park Bruntwood SciTech team members who will be participating and clearing up the south end of the bypass. The idea is for those groups to meet up with those of us starting in the middle at Chelford Road by the cemetery.
11:00 start time.
