Reminder : Community Litter Pick

Our previous community litter pick was in May 2016! Parishioners have noted that there are areas where litter has accumulated.

Consequently the Parish Council has arranged a litter pick on Sunday 6 October at 11am. Equipment will be provided by DDC.  Meet at the village hall. Our intention is to pick litter across the whole Parish.

There will be plenty of child-friendly picking so it really is something for all the family. Please come along for an hour or so.
