Martham Litter Pick Cleans Up!

Martham’s 50 litter pickers braved the showers yesterday to fill up over 20 bags of rubbish from around the village.

Martham Litter Pick 2015 | Martham Parish Council | Norfolk

Over 20 of the volunteers were young people from the Brownies, Rainbows and Youth Club.

Beating records from previous annual litter picks the teams covered 7 more areas of Martham than last time. Organiser Councillor Paul Hooper divides up a map of the village into 12 zones for litter pickers to focus on and ten of these have been given a clean sweep.

Sue Hooper was also on hand to serve tea and biscuits to everyone who returned with a bagful.

A great effort! Thank you everyone.

Of course, villagers can litter-pick at anytime so if you’ve been inspired to keep our streets litter free do it safely and dispose of your bags of litter at the local recycling centre.
