Litter pick results

This weekend, 40 bags of rubbish were collected by 15 volunteers from the Village Trust.

All the litter that could be seen from highways approaching the village [as well as within the village itself] including the Derwent Walk, verges, public open space and private land was picked up.  7 bags of litter was collected along the A694, between the Shotley Bridge and East Law.  Most of it being food and drink containers thrown out of vehicles from takeaways, off licences and supermarkets.

We shall need to tidy up the village centre again just before the Spring judging for our entry in Northumbria in Bloom takes place on Thursday 26th April.

Two years ago we picked up 25 bags, but with fewer volunteers we did not reach as far out from the centre of the village.

We are having another litter pick on 9th June, prior to the Olympic torch arriving on the 16th.
