On Saturday 14 September, Cllrs Simon Firth, Tim Makofu, and Trish Philpot supported volunteers with a huge clean up of the hedgerow behind Wilmot Close in the Prinnels. This area,which backs on to Shaw Ridge Linear Park,has been a hot spot for fly tipping, rubbish dumping and general misuse for many years. A mass of household items were pulled out of the hedgerow including six vacuum cleaners, sound system, toys, garden furniture and pots, rubble, and a mattress! These types of items are not going to rot down, they will stay in the hedgerow for years. Volunteers filled an entire 8 yard skip plus a dozen large bin bags of recyclables. Hopefully now that the clean up has taken place, the area will be treated with the care and respect it deserves.
