Successful Annual Litter Pick


The number of plastic bags filled with litter was well into double figures after our Annual Parish Litter Pick at the weekend.
It was a great show of community spirit with young and old rolling up their sleeves to keep our village’s lanes, hedges, streets and parks tidy. More than 40 volunteers took part and particular mention should go to the MountPickers who tackle litter in our village all year round, and also to 494 Stansted Airport Squadron RAFAC.
Appreciation also to our Councillors who took part, and to Cllrs Lois Prior and George Braeckman both of whom helped organise and plan the event.
On a bright but bitterly cold spring day, Churchill’s offer to treat participants with a free chip supper hit just the right spot, as did Brohmon’s discount off a meal for two. Thank you to both businesses for your support.
