Keeping Linton Looking Lovely!
Linton is a lovely, rural village and it is such a shame that it is disfigured by all the litter that thoughtless folk carelessly discard in our roads and country lanes.
We are going to have our third Litterpicking event on the morning of Saturday, 27 January 2018. It will cover the central parts of Linton, together with parts of Heath Road and the A229, some footpaths including the Greensand Way.
– start at 10am, from Linton Church Car Park, Linton Hill, Linton
– all necessary equipment will be provided
– visit to the Bull Inn afterwards for a refreshing drink courtesy of Linton PC!
– the Borough Council will collect the litter bags
If you are able to take part, please give your name at any time beforehand to Sue Whitmarsh by email or by phone on 01622 747572. The more volunteers we get, the easier the job becomes and the more clear it will be that we care about our village.
If we get enough volunteers , we will have more events at regular intervals in future.. we are not a huge parish, so once every few months may be all that’s needed – watch this space!
The first Grand Linton Litterpick took place on Saturday 29th April. In all a total of seventeen residents took part, and all of the roads south of Heath Road and West of the A229 were cleared of litter, as well as parts of Heath Road and the A229 themselves. Parish Council Chairman Jerry Whitmarsh said “We are really grateful for such a good turnout, it is very encouraging and shows how much residents care about our environment. We will have another litterpick quite soon to clear the roads on the other side of the A229, such as Loddington and Butt Green Lanes.”
The second Grand Linton Litterpick duly took place in September 2017 It was just as successful, and included refreshments courtesy of the Rapid Relief Team and a tour of the Musket Brewery on Loddington Farm. More than thirty bags of litter were collected.
