  • Litter pick in Much Wenlock

    Today saw a resumption of our regular litter pick sessions around Much Wenlock after a summer break. I think we had a record turn-out, which is gratifying. Volunteers equipped with bags and grab sticks headed off in different directions at 10am, returning two hours later with bags full of rubbish of all kinds. Unusually, the…

  • February litter pick

    Eight of us took part in the February litter pick. Because of our numbers we were able to disperse widely and pick up rubbish from places including the churchyard, Bull Ring, the Gaskell field and children’s playground, Bridge Road, Southfield Road and Farley Road. A big pile of full bags was the result of our efforts.…

  • Litter pick in Much Wenlock

    On Friday five of us set off from The Square armed with bags and pickers to find more litter around the town. Farley Road, as ever, yielded most but the usual selection of discarded bottles, cans and packets from around the town swelled the bags which Shropshire Council provides. Unusually for our tidy-ups, it would be…

  • Litter pick in Much Wenlock

    Today four of us gathered to go litter picking along Bridgnorth Road and Farley Road which is usually where most of the litter is found. We also covered Barrow Street, Hunters Gate, Swan Meadow and Walton Hills where, unsurprisingly, there wasn’t much to collect. One of the enjoyable aspects of this walk around our streets is…

  • Litter pick in Much Wenlock

    We held the first litter pick following the summer break today. We had our largest turnout so far, including the mayor, Cllr Bert Harper. Farley Road, Stretton Road, Victoria Road and Bridgnorth Road yielded many bottles, cans and packets and we covered lots of other roads, the car parks and the churchyard. As you can see from…

    Under the leadership of local resident, Julian Walker, we carried out a further litter pick today around Much Wenlock. Starting in the churchyard, we went down the Bull Ring, up towards Station Road and out along Farley Road as far as Shadwell Quarry. Returning across the bottom of Windmill Hill, we picked a lot of litter…

  • Litter

    You may be aware that I led a small team around Much Wenlock on 5th March to “Clean For The Queen”. We were expecting to collect quite a lot of rubbish, but were surprised at the volume that was lying in hedgerows, on grass verges and on the church green. Whilst most of the litter comprised cans, bottles…

  • Clean For The Queen – update

    Saturday 5th March saw us embark on a well-heralded litter-picking exercise in Much Wenlock. A team started from The Square and, meanwhile, a troop of Girl Guides cleaned the town Art Trail. We found bottles, cans and wrappers in the hedges and on the verges as we walked around Wenlock. We even discovered an intact hen’s egg…

  • Clean for the Queen

    Clean for The Queen is a campaign to clear up Britain in time for Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday, which will be officially celebrated in June 2016. I intend to lead a group of local residents this Saturday morning (5th March) in Much Wenlock to do a litter pick and general tidy-up in support of this…
