Litter Pick 26

From our coordinator, Margaret:

"Dear Team,

A huge thank you to all of you who turned up on Saturday morning to  
collect litter around and about Brooklyn Street in Crewe. We had 16  
members out and about and we estimate that we collected at least 25  
bags of litter. We were tasked to litter pick Sainsbury's car park as  
a thank you for allowing us to meet there, but were astonished to find  
it litter free. The answer lay at home, as my son David who works in  
the store on a Saturday had already been out and about when he started  
work and cleared it all up.  A pleased store owner popped out on  
Edleston Road to thank members of the team for their hard work and  
offered coffee, however, our hard working team declined as they knew  
they would be kindly offered top notch refreshments at Dee's house on  
Westminster Street.  Many thanks to Dee for her hospitality and to  
Sandra for her fabulous mince pies.

This was our first litter picking visit to the area, and were  
disappointed to find so much litter within the alley gates at the rear  
of people's homes and the litter inside gardens.   I am sure that I  
speak for most of the team, when I say that we avoid cleaning inside  
alley gates, as this is the responsibility of the people who live  
behind the alley. We can only hope to encourage people to take pride  
in their surrounding by setting an example.  Unless of course the  
council can enforce the house owners to clean up their alley ways, and  
I do not know if this is the case.

Dave and I both wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  
We think it is unlikely that we will have a pick in January as the  
weather is usually against us.  However, if it is mild and I feel plump  
after Christmas I may organise a week day flit about."
