Bennett Restaurants "Hits the Parks"

We all took part in each individual litter pick. I participated in 3 - 2 in Basingstoke and one in Swaythling. The first one in Basingstoke was in Stratton Park and whilst initially it looked like there was very little rubbish, on closer inspection in bushes there was loads of historic rubbish. Our team were fearless, crawling into the bushes to pull out bottles, cans, sweet wrappers and even a shopping trolley and a large piece of perspex.
Our second pick was in War Memorial Park in Basingstoke town centre just behind the council offices & close to Festival Place. We spread far and wide covering as much of the park as possible; some of us doing the main park, others the bushes around the perimeter and a group of us targeted the skate park which was a particular eye sore.
I then went to Swaythling and we went to Riverside Park to complete our litter pick. We covered the main part of the park picking up rubbish left by groups of school kids from the nearby school who had broken up for the summer that day and had clearly "partied" on the park! We then hit the skate park picking up all of the small bits of rubbish around the shelter making a huge difference to the appearance.
