High Peak Borough Councillor Jean Wharmby has appealed for help with litter picking later this year, after successful efforts in previous years by Jean and local residents.
Commenting, Jean said, “I organise litter picks in the ward every year, and they are always very successful, with lots of residents helping out. Last year we averaged over 25 bin bags of rubbish each time, and clearing it all has a huge effect on the look of the area.”
“I would urge any residents whowould like to help out to get in contact with me, and I will let them know as soon as the next litter pick is organised. We normally average about 20 people on each pick, and we all have a good laugh and gossip while doing it.”
