NewsCarlton Spring Clean Litter Pick (16-03-20)
Sixteen volunteers took part in the Annual Litter Pick, in spite of rain and mud. We managed to clear all the roads leading to neighbouring villages, and the pile of rubbish collected measured about 2 cubic metres - see photos.
Prizes were awarded as usual. The most interesting finds were an i-phone charger and an orange workman's jacket, and the most useful finds were a bucket with no holes in it and a dibber. The most disgusting find was a pair of well-worn and very decayed workman's boots.
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.
