A Big Thank-You to the Hardy Litter Pickers!

 ‘The Parish Council would like to convey their thanks to all the hardy souls who turned out last Saturday morning to carry out the annual litter pick. It is noticeable how much tidier the verges are now, and an impressive pile of rubbish was collected on what was a bitterly cold morning. Well done and thank you everyone.’
