SOCIETY MEMBERS CLEAN UP

 

SOCIETY MEMBERS CLEAN UP

On Wednesday this week a team of ‘willing’ volunteers from the Society accompanied by two Council Officers carried out another in our series of ‘litter picks’ and flower bed clean-ups in and around the village centre.

In just a couple of hours 23 bags of litter, rubbish and old plants were cleared from the shopping precinct and the car parks.  The rubbish was of amazing variety, all discarded by people using the village.

In the coming week local Scouts from Ist Knowle Armstrong Explorer Scouts will be carrying out a litter pick in the park, supported by the Society.

We are doing our best to keep Knowle looking good, but it would be much easier if people used the bins.
