Regular Walks 1 and 2

We have also noticed that there is a need to collect along all the roads around Swinton, including up to the Druid's Temple but especially around the Hotel and Spa entrances. We suspect that some of this is dropped by Swinton staff on their way to and from work. Perhaps a word with the estate would encourage them to clean up and tell staff not to litter.  

We can easily fill a large bag on each of these walks on a 2-weekly basis. The majority of the litter is empty drinks cans - Lager and 'High-Energy Drinks' probably dropped by delivery van drivers - plus plastic bottles, glass bottles, fast food containers, cups (usually Macdonalds) and cigarette packets. I think the increase in litter has matched the growth in internet shopping, with deliveries from Manchester, Leeds and Darlington etc. some drivers have no respect for rural areas and don't want their employers or families to know they are drinking alcohol, energy drinks and smoking whilst driving.

To encourage more members I have put a mention in this Friday's D&S Times Town and Village News Section:
Litter Action. - Please help to keep Mashamshire free of unsightly and polluting litter by joining the newly-formed Greener Masham Action Group. Visit litteraction.org.uk/greener-masham to find out more and register to join.

Many thanks for that.  I've recorded 4 bags collected to our total.  David
