NewsCarlton Litter Pick (17-03-19)
24 volunteers took part in the Annual Litterpick, and we were pleased to welcome Maureen Cook, our Borough Councillor, to the team. We managed to clear all the roads leading to neighbouring villages, and although there was less rubbish than in previous years, the pile still measured 1.6 cubic metres.
Prizes were awarded as usual. The most interesting finds were seven frying pans, a baking tin, and a box of toys, and the most useful finds were a pair of spectacles with only one lens broken and an ice scraper. The most disgusting finds were a soggy mouldy muddy roll of carpet and a nappy.
Thanks to all the pickers, and thanks also to the Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council Clean Neighbourhoods Team for the loan of equipment, and for arranging collection of this rubbish.
