FARA litter pick goes ahead whatever the weather

Litter pick volunteers

Litter pick volunteers raring to go

An intrepid band of ten volunteers turned out in showery weather for today’s FARA litter pick, done as part of the Council-organised Spring Clean of the borough. We focused mainly on Wanstead Flats, where we found a plethora of beer cans (perhaps we should apply for sponsorship from Stella Artois next time), and lots of water/Lucozade and other drink containers on and around the football pitches, so we’ll be talking to the Epping Forest managers about that. We stopped a bit earlier than usual due to us all being a bit cold and wet, but nevertheless we managed to fill around a dozen sacks full of rubbish for the Council to collect later, and we left Wanstead Flats a prettier place for everyone to enjoy. Thanks to everyone who turned up to help, and to young Teddy and Bessie the German Shepherd for the moral support!
