Aim of "Zero Litter" is picking up

 June 2013                                                          



THE group's latest "Group Pick" covered roads, paths and lanes off both sides of Welsh Row, including parts of Kingsley Fields and Taylor Drive.

  Eighteen volunteers collected 16 bags of litter in about an hour. Happily the amount of rubbish was noticeably less than on previous picks of the same area. The litter group are considerably heartened by this, for which credit is due to Streetscape (Cheshire East Council's street cleansing team), Litter Group volunteers and Nantwich residents working together.

   A culture of "zero litter" is, of course, the long term aim.

   Volunteers relaxed afterwards with coffee and a chat at the Nantwich Book Shop cafe in The Square.

   Between Group Picks, individual volunteers continue to work tirelessly to keep their own chosen areas clear of litter. Small groups of volunteers also tackle "grot spots" as they are identified.
