10 am Saturday morning – 12 brave souls faced the wind and rain clearing the whole of The Abbe’s Walk.
Craig started early making the rubbish easier to gather on Abbe’s Walk and Julia tackled Burghwallis Lane single handed. We managed to fill 27 bags of rubbish, 15 deposited in the Burghwallis Pub car park (compliments of Sally) for DMBC to collect on Monday and the heavy stuff and a further 12 bags heaped tidily in the layby’s on Abbe’s Walk. This is in addition to the 40 bags collected last year on our previous litter clearing exercise.
Photographs were refused and dignity held in tact by the volunteers, we all looked like drowned rats!!! Many thanks to all who came to help and to Ben Hathaway from DMBC for providing the litter pickers and arranging collection of the debris.
