Coln Valley Litter Pick March 19th 2022
What a magnificent day it was in every way. Wonderful weather and a great sense of community. Despite there being no pick since 2019 there were fewer bags than in previous years - 16 in total of which many were half-filled.
Let’s hope that the culture of throwing rubbish onto the verges is changing and our beautiful area remains unspoiled throughout most of the year.
The March 2020 and 2021 Valley Litter Picks were cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
For the second year running the March 2019 Valley Litter Pick resulted in the Valley earning a Runner’s Up prize of £300 from Cotswold District Council’s 2019 Great Cotswolds Clean-up Competition, sponsored by Coop Midcounties.
This year the judges praised the fact that "volunteer numbers continue to grow and the organisation of their event was a model of good practice".
