Early this morning ( 8am) some individuals gave their time to collect litter to make the park a more pleasant place to spend time in. This was ahead of our community clean-up.
Then, a few hours later, Friends of Mayow Park volunteers with Glendale and the local Safer Neighbourhood Team held a communal annual litter picking event.
We had 7 children in 3 family groups, FOMP committee members, Glendale’s Fabio, Emanuel, Ainsley and Vieira plus two PCSOs - Andrea and her colleague. Vieira brought his two children on his day off!
In total we collected NINE bags of rubbish even after the early morning clean-up session.
Thank you to Lisa L and Hannah L for bringing your children to join and help.
Thank you to Glendale for supplying black bags and the loan of litter picker sticks.
And a very big THANK YOU to B & G Cafe for providing drinks to volunteers after the event.
