Some of the rubbish collected during litterpickColeorton Litterpick
Saturday 17 March

Well, we managed to beat the SNOW! Teams of volunteers were out and about and dodged snow flurries and then enjoyed some sunshine.

We collected loads of the usual fast-food containers, drinks cans and bottles - including several vodka bottles and a champagne bottle! - plastic bags, some with rather dubious contents, plastic sheeting, engine-oil containers. Quite clearly some had just been chucked from cars by careless people (as in lazy people who don't care about the consequences to other people or the environment) driving through. Coleorton residents wouldn't do that would they?

Other junk was possibly blown from red recycling bins during our recent storms. Please do check the lids are on firmly, weighted down with a brick if needed, and if the wind has blown stuff around - please go and pick it up. We all need to do our bit to keep our parish looking good and safe for wildlife too.

Thanks to all who turned out in the cold.

About Coleorton Parish

Coleorton Parish includes the villages of Coleorton, Coleorton Moor, Church Town and Farm Town as well as parts of Peggs Green, Griffydam and Lount. The Parish Plan survey in 2008 found that parishioners felt communication of information throughout the parish was not effective and so a website was set up to address this. The website has now become a centre of information about activities and events in and around Coleorton, local clubs and organisations, a directory for local businesses and services and a platform for people who would like to share their enthusiasm for local history and the environment.
