NewsCarlton Spring Clean Litter Pick (21-03-21)
The roads between Carlton and Market Bosworth, Bosworth Marina, Congerstone, Barton in the Beans and Osbaston were all cleared of litter on 21st March 2021 by the Keep Carlton Tidy Group in their 29th Annual Litter Pick.
The event was exceptionally well supported, with 32 adults and 9 young people participating, and we collected more than two cubic metres of rubbish - mainly bottles, cans and food wrappings, though tyres, a smashed cathode ray TV tube, spent cartridges, a sat nav, and bedding added to the variety.
