Civic Pride Folk …… (CPF) :
CPF (1) Wow! Stormin’ Norman (Norman McLaren ….. is the surname correct, Norman?) is setting Whitewell Bottom on fire. Litter, weeds and rubbish will soon cease to exist there. Put 26th May in your diary as the day when ghastly Himalayan Balsam will cease to exist thereabouts, courtesy of our new WWB crew. Bacon butties and the like all organised to lure you along. Big community job.
CPF (2) Rob went up to The Halo last week and found – no litter! He hid his disappointment well, we thought. Why’s this info here? ‘Cos it’s yet another indicator of the effectiveness of our Litter Crews and Lone Rangers. Places which are regularly cleaned tend to stay clean (not always true, but often the case)Thank you, pickers everywhere. Gerrout there, clear somewhere and wear your hi-viz with pride!
CPR (3) Grimmers for Brexit Secretary. Vote now ….. (if you don’t know what that’s about please ask!).
