Litter pickers

Volunteers gather to take part in a litter pick organised by Alvechurch Village Society.

Twenty eight people offered their help just before New Year and the result was a clean and tidy village ready for 2008.

Organiser and village society committee member Grace Hampson said: “We were really pleased that so many people joined the litter pick and we managed to cover a wide area.

“When we finished there was a noticeable difference.  Crisp packets, sweet wrappers, plastic pop bottles and cigarette packets were most common (suggesting who the culprits are) but socks, gloves and parts of a car were also found!” 

The Village Society says it is determined to make Alvechurch a cleaner and tidier village and will be organising another litter pick in the spring.
