Lothersdale litter pickers’ efforts far from rubbish
10:50am Friday 25th October 2013 in Keighley
Lothersdale residents have decided to take action to make sure the village was ready for the onset of winter.
They were out and about on Saturday clearing rubble, leaves and litter from gullies as part of a general tidy-up.
Parish clerk Esther Barrows borrowed litter pickers, high-visibility jackets and refuse sacks from Craven District Council, and the primary school provided small high-vis jackets for younger helpers.
“The event was a great success, with 14 people turning up,” said Esther. “Areas of high road and pedestrian use were targeted first. Outside the school and village hall were thoroughly swept. The village noticeboards were also cleaned.
“More than 30 bags of leaves and rubble were collected, and volunteers were treated to hot bacon muffins, tea and cake in the village hall as a thank you from the parish council.”
