This was were the Council asked the ward Cllrs in each of the 25 wards to organise a big spring clean in their respective wards. Not being a political issue most wards, I understand, took part and Cllrs from most Wards did something in their area.
I wanted to say in my report that we picked up everything but the kitchen sink but as you can see from the pictures someone had even dumped one of those along the line with a chair.
Something that was asked was can we have bins along the route and that way we would not have to do this. Because this is a dirty path where no vehicles come along the Council vans would not be able to get there. However, I do believe that there could be a number of strategic places where bins could be placed near or next to a road so that the council operatives could service the bins. We, as your ward Cllrs, will be speaking with the Council to try and get these.
Going forward it may be a case that we organise another litter pick to try and start where we finished and move along and try and get to the School Lane end. As many dog walkers, bike riders and resident discussed may things with us along the way and it was great to meet them too,
|Mr Ray Chan - true Gentleman and truly nice guy|
Should you want to get involved in the next litter pick please let me know.
Once again Big Thank you to the helpers, Bitchell Skips and Wigan Council for making this happen.
|Skip with litter that we collected along the Line - chair and sink as well.|
