Let's Clean-Up Hollow Pond

The meeting was very positive and the Forest Rangers said that they couldn't believe that we had made such an impact in such a short time,  They say that the person responsible for this area of the forest was ill and has been off on long term sick leave for a very long time

As an on-going activity in addition to the mid-week session that we are planning (that they have agreed to help with (by providing bags and taking the rubbish away at the end) they are wanting to arrange a regular clean-up session (perhaps the last Sunday in the month) They will promote it on Twitter and facebook so that we get  a good cross-section of the public to help.

They also want to get other organizations involved too.  All very positive so an excellent start has been made.

I did a pretty thorough search around yesterday afternoon, wondering if there would be sufficient litter to make a work party worthwhile. I found several hotspots that had obviously not been tackled, as well as enough litter generally to keep a group occupied.

Now that I have 'advertised' it, and given that at least one person has said that they would like to attend a mid-week session, I would like to go ahead.

I've spent 4 hours each day this week down there litter picking

I know of only 4 bad areas left  I think that the job is making great progress,  although a realise it will never ever be complete.  People do seem to be respecting the place and not leaving rubbish any longer.

I have a meeting with Corporation of London Rangers today at 2.00pm to agree a way forward, but it seems very promising I think.
